Hello everyone, It’s been a while since I’ve been on the site. I got the CarveWright machine in March and I just got around to playing with it a bit. Here is a box I made out of some oak pallet wood that I have. I love this machine!

Wow… That is a lot of fine detail on that box. I see that you are mastering the new tool quite well.
