Jim,

I have not actually seen the statues but judging from the pics they are awesome. Especially since they were cut by slices on a flat table and assembled.

I have Fusion360 and Rhino 6. They are good programs but, IMHO, they are best suited for 3D printing. Most woodworkers choose Aspire or V-Carve because it is better for carving and cutting parts.

I'm with you on this one, Joe. The inability to add upgrades or add-ons to my machine is a serious issue that I didn't consider when I bought my machine. I don't want to be a whiner or a nay-Sayer...

Nice job Mark. I'll be 74 this year and I only work on the things that are fun and when I want to also. This getting old stuff isn't for the faint of heart but sometimes it has it's advantages.

I used to buy the box roll from Woodcraft. They are pre-measured and have the angle marked and ready to cut. A little pricey though.
