Is using a CNC machine in a woodshop cheating? I guess that depends on your definition of cheating when it comes to woodworking? After all some woodworkers would insist anything with a power cord definitely is cheating!
While all of you debate this topic, I thought I’d share this recent video I found on the Toolstoday YouTube channel. It’s titled “Kerf Chair, Designed by Boris Goldberg”.
According to the details:
“…the chair was CNC routed into 1/2″ Maple Plywood. The chair legs were routed from plywood using the nesting technique with an Amana Solid Carbide Spiral Flute Plunge Downcut Router Bit. Once the legs were glued together, the seat of the chair was created with a Solid Carbide Spiral Compression Router Bit, a Carbide Tipped Plunging Round-Over Router Bit and a Solid Carbide Mini Spiral Compression Router Bit.”
All I know is, I’m starting to think it’s time for Samantha to give up the other side of the basement so I can fit something like this into the workshop!
