Extending a very sincere "Thank You" to all of you who participate in the CAMheads forum and to the folks at CAMaster.

It's been a little less than 5 months since I first spoke with Jim Haga and a little over 3 months since Luke and Paul delivered my machine. Below are some pic.s of a piece that I installed yesterday. Without my wonderful machine and all of the folks (characters?!) that make up the CAMaster family, I most certainly wouldn't have received the numerous "that's cool"s (and more importantly, "how did you make this?"s) from the kids along with the "that's beautiful"s from the teachers and volunteer parents and finally the "that's way cool" from the band teacher (fellow woodworker) during the install yesterday.

The piece will display bios of the staff at Ridgeview Charter School in Sandy Springs, GA and was commissioned by the foundation that supports the school. The primary wood (white oak barn boards) was supplied by a member of the foundation . . . both were key drivers of the design style. Approx. 95% of the wood components touched the bed of my CAMaster along the way.

Folk art and a CNC . . . not even on my mind this time last year . . pretty "way cool" and a lot of fun too!

Thanks again.
Paul

Awesome work.

I really like the embossed lettering on the bolt heads.

Default Jeff, James, Michael and Mick . . .

Morn'n gentlemen.

Thanks for the kind comments . . .

Jeff: I see you're in Charleston . . . looks like the next family trip to Seabrook is going to be a business one assuming you'll be so kind to allow me a tour!

James: I could write a book about how much I've learned from you but will keep it simple: Every time I turn on my machine I think . . . "initialize!". If you're around in late May and have a place for me to stow twin boys and a couple of dogs for a few minutes, I'd love a tour and a few words of wisdom.

Michael: The journey to the end better be all the fun . . . I'm certain I'll be learning until the end of me. Absolutely beautiful stuff on your website . . . lot of courage including that Braves piece!

Mick: Have to humbly disagree. Can't imagine how far behind I'd be without all the information I've learned from you all (both the gurus and the apprentices who have the courage to ask the questions) . . . here and elsewhere . . . I think my wife could recognize you by voice given how many times I've watched your videos while on the couch . . . if you ever get a funny look from a flight attendant on a Delta jet, you might want to pipe down if you want that extra pack of cookies.

Have fun out there.
Paul

Absolutely! I'm actually on Johns Island. You have to drive right by my shop to get out there. Get in touch when you get close.

Default Dust Boot Concept

Added a new album with pic.s of a boot concept that I've been working on. http://camheads.org/album.php?albumid=56 Similar to Gary's high efficiency shoe in that it concentrates suction around the cutter head but the interior is shaped in an attempt to get a smoother flow. The body and the skirt(s) are detachable (magnets).

This is proto #2 and (as always) I already have a list of improvements but any thoughts would be much appreciated.

Thanks,
Paul

Thumbs up

Great design
I've been wanting to do the same thing for my machine.
What are you going to use for the skirt?
Will the skirt be interchangeable from say a 2" to 4"
depending on the depth of cutting?

My concerns with a longer skirt is it might get pulled/pushed into the cutting bit.
Like the design as it gets the boot up and out of the way.

Thanks for your work brother
