Hi guys and gals.
My name is Jim Underwood, and I really like woodworking. I like woodturning and carving in particular.
If you have a CNC router, introduce yourself with a picture of your machine or projects and tell us a little about yourself.
I’ll start off.
I work in a medium sized cabinet shop in Georgia as their technical manager. In my previous life I was an auto-mechanic for 14 years, so I ensure that the machines in our shop do their thing. This includes the KOMO 5’ x 10’ 3 axis CNC router as well as a HolzHer Edgebander, and a 42” Houfek Widebelt Sander. (And yes, I’ve been deep in the guts of all three machines. Cursing is a hazard of the trade.)
At home I have the proprietary CarveWright Router, with it’s proprietary “Designer” software and the STL importer, as well as access to the ArtCAM dongle and software. So I can create anything that fits the parameters of the Carvewright.
While I’ve made quite a few projects on our machine at work (not to mention umpteen zillion cabinet jobs) I’ve only made a few on my CW at home.
Here are a few projects:
