I apologize if this is the wrong place for introductions but after looking in each section and reading the section description, this seemed like the most likely place for it.
While I am totally new when it comes to woodworking, I am very experienced in the design end of things. I am a formally-trained and experienced graphic designer as well as an experienced 3D artist who has made many a piece of virtual furniture in my day.
But as for real life? Nothing. But after doing so many 3D models, I really want to start making something tangible. And after hearing about recent CNC technology being able to reproduce 3D files, I figured I would have something to offer in that respect.
The things I do NOT have are:
a) the hands-on knowledge of woodworking
b) the equipment and space to make furniture
c) The cash to obtain said equipment and space.
What I have in abundance are 3D skills and an endless amount of ideas that seem to be pretty different from much of the traditional designs I have seen.
Nothing against traditional by any means, though. I just come up with concepts that are a bit outside the norm, is all.
So if anyone seems to find the artsy side of woodworking a challenge but has the technical end down pretty good and wants to put our heads together, please contact me. I’d love to team up with someone so we could both benefit educationally (as well as financially if we end up manufacturing something people want to buy).
Anyways, thanks for the warm welcome, everyone!
