The ipaddle

Here it is, the newest magical and revolutionary product from Cupertino...cut in birch ply wood on the CNC, also available in masonite, below. Update! Looks like Apple's director of Developer Relations is now in possession of one of these.

Mug design

A fun cafepress creation for my soon-to-be father in law. He really likes being retired.

My CNC setup

This is my Fireball CNC router. The case is lined with foam soundproofing. I'm using a small trim router with a 1/4" collet. I had a dremel on there for a while, but it was really lacking in power.

This case comes apart in two pieces. The bottom part houses the power supply, vacuum, and lots of spare parts and materials.

When cutting MDF, there is some kind of static reaction with the soundproofing and the vacuum hose. Interesting formations.
