Free Demonstration of the CarveWright CNC Routing Machine at Highland Woodworking, Sat., Jan. 17

CW.jpg Experienced woodcarver Ben Arthur will give a free live demonstration of the CarveWright CNC routing machine at Highland Woodworking in Atlanta on Saturday, January 17, 2009 from 10 AM to noon.

Until recently, Computer Numerically Controlled (CNC) routing machines were available only in large industrial models costing upwards of $100,000. The CarveWright is the first CNC machine available to purchase for less than $2000, making it available to small commercial woodworking shops as well as serious amateur woodworkers who wish to eliminate much of the laborious work required to reproduce 3-dimensional objects and designs.

The CarveWright's onboard computer and design software make it simple for even a novice to carve decorative reliefs, make signs or mill just about anything imaginable in wood, high density foam as well as some plastics. Although compact (just slightly larger than a benchtop planer), the CarveWright can handle work up to 5" thick, 14.5" wide and almost any length. Users have great latitude in their ability to manipulate designs from an extensive 3D pattern library, or can create their own designs. The CarveWright is compatible with both PC and Mac operating systems.

Ben Arthur has extensive experience in CNC production, and owns and operates an industrial model CNC machine in his own production shop in Atlanta.

Attendance at the demonstration is free to the public, and no advance registration is necessary.

Sounds like a cool little machine, and cheap too.
