I have a client that wants me to produce 600 wood panels for him. They are basic shapes mostly ovals and half ovals from 10.5” X 15” to 10” X 36”. Made out of ¾” pine.
We typically build larger stuff, these panels are real simple – but I don’t know how efficiently they can be built. I don’t really want to turn down the business, as this client has been very good about bring more business in.
We have a small CNC to make patterns with, but it is too small to use for more than a few pieces.
Because of a couple of other things we do I’m working on buying a overarm / pin router and they can be found very reasonably, and if I can get one quick enough we can use it for this project.
We have a 50” drum sander, but it really sucks to sand pine with it. I wish I had a wide belt.
If this order was yours how would you go about making all these panels without losing your mind? Short of buying a large CNC, is this even possible to think about?
THANKS FOR YOUR HELP!
