Howdy folks. I hope you had a great New Years Eve and wish you the best of luck and happiness in the new year to come. I'm kind of just taking it easy today waiting for 5:00 when my Wolverines will take the field in Pasadena. I was just sitting here watching The Discovery Channel because they are running a "Dirty Jobs" marathon. I just love that show. All of a sudden a commercial comes on and I wasn't really paying attention and just caught the tail end of it and it looked VERY interesting. Luckily I have a DVR and just backed up a minute or so and saw what has got to be one of the COOLEST woodworking tools I've ever seen and at this point it's on my gotta have list. Now mind you I haven't been doing much woodwork for a while but I could really find some good uses for this thing. It's by Craftsman and is called the "Compu-Carve". It's basically a home shop size CNC machine for wood, acrylic, plastic, foam, etc. It's a little pricey at $1899 but boy could that thing be fun! I'm going to look into this thing and try to find anyone that has one to see how they like it. If it's as nice as it looks, I'd surely like to try one someday. Here's a link to some more info....
Now I'm off for some heavy duty brainstorming. I'm sure that I can come up with a good rationalization for why I just have to have one. We'll see what SWMBO has to say about it.
