Default First Project

Finally up and running. Lots to learn but imperfections or not I completed it to have a first project to give the lady. I am not new to woodworking. But I am a newbe/Jeep/beginner whatever term you use to CNC's, WinCNC, and Aspire. I have not posted much as I am in sponge mode reading and learning.
I didn't break anything important :D so it is a win!

That's an excellent result! Just keep cutting...not only do you learn new things as you add complexity, but you establish important habits including mundane things like remembering to set you x-y "zero" before each and every project and other little things that in the initial excitement sometimes get, um..."mentally de-emphasized". :)

Congratulations Tim. Your on your way! 5 years from now youíll look back and be amazed at what youíve done. I bought my first 4 x 8 cnc in 2006. Iím still at ah at the things my machines have allowed me to accomplish with a lot less trouble.

Very nice project, Tim. You are on the way!

Its all down hill and picking up speed from here. Of course, knowledge bumps hurt a lot more the faster you are going.
Dont ask me how I know.....

Let me clue you into another thing you're going to experience...

Consider the old adage, "To a hammer, everything is a nail". Yup...same with the CNC

Well I watched YouTube to find out how to Inlay. YouTube would never lead me to treat something soft and fragile like it was a nail right? I kid I kid. Thanks all, I am pretty exited. The thought of being able to replicate something easily is not something I am accustomed to. I have made some neat things by hand with a saw and a hand held router. Then after I thought man i could sell this. But not if it takes a week to make another one. HA
