Hello everyone…

i’ve returned finally after an 8 month deployment to the Persian Gulf.

Now that I am home, I can get started on all the projects I dreamed up over those many months away from home. First on my planning board is a segmented vessel. I’ve got a preliminary drawing I want to go off of, but I would also like to get a bit of software involved since although I am right 98% of the time, the other 3% it is a math problem :)

I’ve done some google searching, and I’ve seen a couple that are available, but If anyone has used anything out there, and can offer a recommendation and reasons why you chose that particular program, I would be greatly appreciative. Thanks for the help :)

Welcome home!

I have been using WoodTurner Pro ( http://woodturnerpro.com/ ), and have been very happy with it.

I am also using woodturner pro and like it a lot and it is reasonably priced. I understand that the have improved it by adding more features since I bought mine.

First, Thank you for your service. Not that I have ever been, but deployments seem difficult on many levels. Thanks to you and your family for enduring that.

I too, have used Wood turner pro also, it works well, but I have to admit, I have more fun to just “wing it”.

Thanks for the advice on the software… I’m going to wing my first one, so depending on how it comes out I’ll see how much I am willing to drop a $50 bill on the software. I have a layout I drew up, now I just need to get some time, and wood.
