WWGOA LIVE! All About CNC

Thanks to all the folks who joined us for the CNC LIVE stream. If you missed it, no problem, you can watch it here. We talked about CNC machines in general and the jargon associated with them, different approaches for making signs, working with material besides wood on the CNC, and router bit selection. Lots of great info.

Thanks to our friends at Iconic CNC and Amana Tool for providing you with this free event.

    The CNC method is really interesting, but here's a "political" comment/question: Is it really woodworking? Someone famous once commented, "You didn't build that." The CNC machine made it. You just programmed it. How much different is that from going to a CNC shop and having the sign made for you except that you happen to own your own machine? Make that sign by hand and I'll say, "Wow." Have the machine make it and, well, that's nice.

    George can I laminate different species of boards in order to contrast my lettering by cutting through the top´╗┐ species to the species on the bottom?

    Are consumer grade CNC CAM packages smart enough to know to use a large bit for roughing out the design then switch to a finer (or progressively finer) bit?
