Quite a few years ago I purchased a CMT 3D Router Carver System by CMT.
My first project was the front of a cedar chest I built for my oldest son as a wedding gift. It allowed me add a professional looking carving on the front of the chest without screwing it up since I do not know how to carve.
I have had this tool for at least 10 years and for a while it went out of production but a couple of years ago they reintroduced it.
It is easy to set up and as long as you have a ½” plunge router you are in business. My most recent project was to add carvings to all our interior doors in our new house. It was a great way to take a fairly basic wood door and make it look a lot more expensive!
You can view the doors and the results of the 3D router carver system on our web site at: http://mountainviewdome.com/HouseInterior15.htm click on any picture to enlarge it.
I have also built custom furniture and added carvings to dress it up and personalize it. With 46 patterns to choose from plus you can use even just part of a pattern to fit your needs so there are many options!
It may no be a tool for the purists but for those of us that have not found the time to develop the talents to custom carve things in replication then its worth looking at!
