This summer I got a new CNC machine. I never thought it would be something I would have much use for, I always figured I was so small it wouldn’t make any difference to me. I was wrong. It has taken about 6 months for me to get comfortable with it and in that time I have redesigned about half of my tools. I can now think more about exactly what I want the tool to do and less about how I am going to make it. I am proud to say I feel my tools are not only functionally better then they have ever been but they are also visually better.
