Mike (@mikeythemaker) and I just dropped a bonus episode dedicated to CNC. We took some questions from the community, Mike asked a few of his own, and we pondered the age old question of if using a CNC machine is “cheating” if you’re a woodworker. . . Hit the @ifyoubuilditpodcast link and give it a listen.

Spent the morning clearing the snow from my driveway. I guess when you’re a CNC nerd, all you see is toolpaths, no matter what you’re doing. . . . #snowday #CNC #alldayeveryday #too#toolpaths #toolpath

Remember those mysterious boxes I was cutting out before the new year? Well it took a little longer than I wanted, but they have been delivered and seen by their recipients, so I’m free to post about them now! . . I saw these amazing keychain fobs from @darkatticworks and though “this is the perfect present for the person who has everything.” And they were. The only extra was I wanted to make a nice case to present them in. . . . One thing led to another and before I knew it, I had spent 10+ hours on the design and prototyping of what started out as “an easy present”. . . . I just kept adding features like the magnetic catches, then I wanted to engrave a quote on the lid, so at one point, I had to make a custom fixture to do the two sided machining on the lids!! . . . But in the end it was all worth it. They turned out great and I think the recipients really appreciated the gesture. . . #cnc #machining #handmade #custom #gift #oneofakind #crafty #carbide3d #carbidecreate #shapeoko #cases #customenclosure

This was a gift from @jpl@jpl_richard to me when we met at makerfaire last June. Still one of the best presents I’ve ever received. Nothing in the photo for scale, but it measured 1.5” x 1.5” x 1.5”. This turners cube sits on my desk most of the time and is shown to anyone who walks into my office. Thanks again @jpl_richard!! . . . Happy new year to everyone, thanks for a great 2017 and looking forward to making 2018 the best year yet!!

Remember those things I was cutting last week that nobody could guess what there were? Well, I don’t have any reveals to show because the gifts haven’t been delivered yet. However, I went down a rabbit hole of epic proportions on this one. I’m super excited to share the whole story once the cat is out of the bag. Until then, here are some more pics to keep you guessing!

Trying to finish up a last minute Christmas present!!

I spend my morning doing a demo for my wife’s classroom at the local middle school. Turned out great. Kids loved hearing about the engineering process, specifically that failure isn’t a failure at all. It is just an opportunity to improve something.

Well this turned out pretty great! Is intended to be storage for utensils and napkins, but will also work as a homework caddy; pens, pencils, markers, and paper. Compartments are big enough for wine bottles and bombers too! What would you use it for? . . . #carbide3d #shapeoko #carbidecreate #cnc #cncmachining #cncrouter #cncmilling #cncmachine #cncmade #cncproject #handmade #gifts #storage #organization

My shapeoko was in beast mode today. Back at the 12mm Baltic trying to finish up a couple of these projects! Waiting for a shipment from McMaster before I can wrap this up and show the finished pics.

Real time, no speed up required. This is a project I’ve wanted to do for about 6 years. Finally making it happen! Finished pics tomorrow.

No time for staging pictures for this one. As soon as the paint was dry, my kiddos were all over this Doll bunk bed. Designed in Carbide Create, modeled after my girls real life bunk beds.

Working on some Christmas presents today. Interesting approach here: instead of filling with epoxy then sanding and staining, I took the time to evenly spread the epoxy across the surface. The wood grain really popped and the contrast for the letters is still strong. If this doesn’t change much after the cure, I’ll skip sanding and staining all together!

Testing out some software updates, needed to cut a few parts and decided to use the Nomad. Forgot how quiet this machine is! . . #carbide3d #shapeoko #carbidecreate #cnc #cncmachining #cncporn #cncrouter #cncmilling #cncmachine #cncmade #cncproject #mak#makersgonnamake #makersmovement #makers

It has been a long time since I’ve build a standard size shapeoko. Had forgotten how easy the assembly is. Just look at shine, so clean!

This is one of my favorite all time shapeoko projects. Read the description below for details. . . #Repost @joshmitchellfrey (@get_repost) ・・・ Success! Finally got around to finishing this custom speed booster mount for RED. Takes Kipon Baveyes SB (Pentax 645>Leica M) and adapts it for DSMC. #cncmachined #redepicdragon #mediumformat #fullframe35mm #pentax645 #pentax67 #speedbooster #focalreducer #kipon #baveyes #customdesign #metalwork #shapeoko3 #carbide3d #fusion360 #cameragear #filmgear #cinematography

Not many true product pictures in my feed, but - if you own a Shapeoko and are looking for a sweet hold down system, look no further. Hit the link in my bio and check the store for details.

Went to the hardwood store yesterday to grab some hickory for an upcoming build. Couldn’t resist the pallet of drops for $25! Now the only question is what to do with it! What does everyone think? @mwawoodworks only sees cutting boards, but what would you do with these beauties?

#tbt that time I drove to Nashville and hung out with @mwawoodworks for the day. We had a great time talking shop, tools, wood, and bourbon. Looking forward to our next visit!
