I don't know what the program is called, it's some type of monogram program the customer has for their vinyl cutter. So we've been using the bitmap trace in Aspire because they can save their work as a jpg.

I'm almost done drawing all the fonts in AutoCAD. I don't like some of the edge quality from the bitmap trace feature.

Jim !!

Thank you Sir! I love my job. I get to talk to all kinds of different people, different levels of expertise. I love learning from others as well. This walnut job is very exciting, but so are the other pop up jobs I have. I guess I just love it all!

I have seen the Krispy Kreme bus! I would love to have a shot at inlaying solid surface! I don't know Buddy, is he in SC/NC?

I'm excited to have at...I need time though, unless I get to do it for a job.

This year is going to be fun! I'm already up to my ears in saw dust.

Default First Sign

Picture of my first V carved sign. Had lots of fun with this and the customer was beyond happy. This is a piece of hard maple, v carved letters, aluminum composite inlay. I gel stained the sign, and hand painted the letter black with acrylic paint.

I hated seeing this sign go as I loved it. Maybe one day I can have the same thing!

Default Live Edge Table

I have been so busy, I forgot to share those walnut "slabs" that I needed to flatten and join together! Unfortunately this is the only picture I have on hand. Customer was very happy, and this has lead to repeat business! Really wish a had a glue rack...hint hint if you have one laying around Jim!!

Default More Outsourced Work

A brand new Customer with a great product! We recently ran into a guy who is making and selling these clay pot hangers. The hangers are made from cedar and have a cord that hangs from either a shepherds hook, a hook, and/or a regular plant hanger. This is our first production run of 75, and my fixture needs to be revised. It went well, just cutting one at a time...but the new fixture I'm thinking of loading the entire table and cutting 16 at a time.

I also need to revised the location of my toggle clamps (if I can) because the dust shoe was in the way.
