Should You Buy a CNC? In this episode I go over my experience, as a woodworker / furniture maker and how I use a CNC. I will cover my history, how my opinions have changed, the main things I utilize my CNC for, the basic skills needed to use one, and ultimately if I think a CNC is worth buying.

Great cordless tool. Powerful enough for what I was doing MyBest.Tools Bought to make it easier to cut out windows after plywooding exterior. Takes a little getting use to but overall great tool.

From this video what I learnt most is the part that ends the video :). Joyful humor. I followed you both since each of you had your own channels, but I like it better this way. Good team.

Your shoe push stick was a great example of how you now regularly integrate the traditional with CNC for detail work. 👍

Nicholas Jacober says:

Great video. Thank you. Would you comment on bed size. What size is your machine. Do you often wish for more?

Barbara Lee says:

The jumpy ness of this video gave me a headache 😫

Thankyou for the video and the tips

Joe Martinez says:

Chris, this was very informative. I have been kicking the CNC decision down the road for years. I am still not ready (translation: I have no room in the garage). Anyway, I really, really like the comedic ending, it was really well done.

Emil Tisell says:

When using sketch up and CNC for assemblies – how do you manage to incorporate a bit of wiggle room e.g. for joints? Is there a functionality or are you adding like a 1/128 inch manually?

michael Ryan says:

Very informational!…More education!…Just finished my Fusion 360 class…looking for a machine. I am looking for a machine for headstock and neck MoP inlay, so my scale is very small. I am looking @ 3018 as a first machine..any recommendations?????
