Thanks. Mr. McG! It's really nice landing a "real" job and have it turn out well and have the confidence of the customer/maker for doing it over and over again over time. (that's a lot of "overs" come to think of it. LOL)

I hope you're not too water-logged from the latest nasty storm passing by! We get it today.

Jim,
I think you will soon discover what we have......while it may be monotonous at times, there is money to be made in cutting the same parts repetitively. As you progress along, you will constantly be making tweaks to your process as well as your toolpaths with each tweak adding to your bottom line. While we still do the varied style cuts for a local cabinet shop, 98% of our daily cutting is repetitive for our consumption or for another casket manufacturer. I am happy for you and look forward to seeing more of your work/process in the coming weeks!

I agree, as repetitive jobs do get "boring", sometimes even get the "Oh no, do I have to make this again" thoughts, they are also the bread and butter. Its a handful of repeat customers. The rest is the Jam, you have to work for that Jam. I have (on my CNC Machine at home), got my 9 year old twin boys to run the machine for those repetitive jobs, and they love it. Cheap labour .

Oh, I hope I can land a lot of this "boring, repetitive" stuff...because while I'm cutting things like "chair butt parts", I can be working on this kind of thing which I truly enjoy....and I was actually working on it while the CNC was doing its thing...

I like the live edge on that. That big splinter looks like something waiting to stab my hand though.

I do thorough splinter testing on all my stuff by carelessly running my hand over it at some point....

The "splinter" is glued down and isn't going to come free...it's part of what one has to do when working with natural edge materail sometimes, especially on more "rustic" pieces. It's also in a spot that's less likely to get "handled", pardon the impression.... :)

"Too long", but it's the nature of the beast...all told for both sides including the human factor, about 2:15:00. As I noted, with limited distance for acceleration, even at 400-500ipm just can't get faster. This job is also tear-out adverse...

Jim, I bet you have read this post but just in case you haven't I wanted to be sure you had found it. Tear out is something that Russell does a good job avoiding with his toolpaths on the stool plans I have purchased from him.
