    CNC in the woodshop

    i know, I know, it's not "traditional" woodworking, but it turns out pretty nice. This is an inlaid cutting board I did for a friend. The board is hard maple and the inlay is purpleheart.

    VERY cool Gary, do tell, what machine are you using!

    Gary, are you using a commercial router or did you make your own CNC?

    Gary nice job.

    I am a CNC guy - so I know that is not ALL CNC. You did a LOT of traditional work too.

    The inlay is CNC - and that is gorgeous.

    Nice job.

    So --- do tell, what software do you program with - and what process did you use to do the inlay?

    I use Vectric V-Carve pro - but have never tried an inlay yet.

    Man, this is Family Woodworking, not traditional woodworking (what is that by the way???), heck, they even look at my cobbling from time to time!! I don't care what you call that, that is one extremely nice piece!!!! Waiting on your answers to all of the questions from the guys that have machines and information on how to produce something like that.

    Very nice, Gary. The inlay's great, and it looks like a fine cutting board underneath it.

    I hope he is either a very good friend or paying you a bundle.
    That's one fine cutting board.
