New Shop Sign
This is my first experience with CNC (Computer Numerical Control). This is not my machine. I worked with a friend on this. Many factories and high output guitar manufacturing operations utilize CNC for shaping various parts for construction. All of the parts for my guitars are made with my own hands, hand tools, some standard woodshop power tools, and the jigs I have made. I have to admit, CNC is pretty cool. The design for a project is sketched out in software and a motorized router is directed on tracks to cut according to the project's specifications. It is actually not that difficult design the project and operate the machine. My logo in the sign is inlaid rosewood. The rosewood was cut to shape and then the pocket for the logo cut out for a perfect fit. The logo was then inlaid into the sign. After that, we followed with the lettering. I may consider using CNC in the future, but for now, I'm satisfied to continue with my current methods...
