Default Vindication! Why I Chose CAMaster Twice

Hello all. Yes, it has been quite some time since I have posted, most likely better than a year. I hope all has been well with everyone, hoping you have been safe, productive, and profitable! While I began this thread with the same title of another thread last year, I feel quite strongly it still holds true. CAMaster has indeed, through quality construction and superb service, been instrumental in assisting our business to the next level. I thought I would share a couple pictures and say hello to everyone. Between 2 CNCs, a new girlfriend (well, she was new this time last year ), additional employees, etc, etc, I have neglected some great people on here. Then again...…it may have been a welcome reprieve, haha!

I have attached some pictures. One is of the first casket (cedar) I ever built in the spring of 2017 and the second picture is of our current cedar model that was taken for the sales catalogue this summer. Having CAMaster on our team has enabled us to dramatically change our product which has had a positive direct impact upon sales. To all of the "new guys and gals" on the forum, I say this with humble confidence....ALWAYS utilize your available resources....ie the incredible knowledge and talent on this forum. While I will not list them (each and every one of you know who you are), there are several fine people I have met on here that have contributed to our blessed journey. You know who you are as we speak quite often!

I have attached a couple other photos, one is of the popular Reclaimed Heart Pine that we bought the wood from a supplier that tore down a cotton gin in GA built in 1908. Hope to speak to all of you soon!
Our CNCs can be seen in action on our Facebook page, R&L Woodworks. For those of you that don't know, CNCs touch every aspect of our caskets yet during an audit recently, we are currently utilizing only 18% of the design capability (not to be confused with operational utilization) of the machines!

Kindest regards,

Good to see you fly in for a post. We miss you. :)

While I have never used Ron's product ;), I have had the chance to examine all that goes into building these long-term resident housings. He goes above and beyond the normal building construction to offer the highest quality product possible.

Hey Ron,

It was through my initial reading of yours and Jimís testimonials and our multiple phone conversations that led me to the purchase of my Panther. You guys were spot on and I donít have a single regret or felt I could have done better regarding my decision to go with Camaster. I canít thank you enough! I hope to see you at Aspire Camp 2020, so we can share a steak dinner again together with our good buddy Mike Fuson!

Glad to see things going so well Ron. These machines are built like tanks and Iíve not had any issues except for a few bone head mistakes I made on my own. Itís definitely a learning process with what software can do but itís changed the way I build cabinets. Definitely a game changer. Looking forward to seeing you and Bruce at Jimís and seeing who can eat the biggest steak!

Thanks Bruce, Mike, & Wes! It’s been a “journey” indeed! I lose sight, ashamedly too often at times, at how far we’ve come in such a short time. As the old adage goes, “the harder we work, the luckier we get”. Bruce.....I know my memory gets a little sideways at times but I seem to vaguely recollect Mike wanting to buy you and I “the biggest steak we can find” when we all got together again. ��
Then again, I think I owe you a fine meal too, lol!
Wes....hope your making plans for next year to join us!

Thanks for the kind words gents.

I havent posted for a bit too. I allways have to much going on.
I had to checkout all your facebook posts on your growing business. I am so glad that you have become a master casket maker. I noticed in your facebook pages. You were constantly trying new ways to build and improve your products. That's the mark of a successful business. Dont be satisfied with the status quo... keep improving.
