This is from DIY Crafts on facebook. They took my original video and edited it for their site. At the time of posting here it has over 2 million views. The comments absoultly blast me for 'wasting' all the colored pencils. Guess what, they were dontated by Positive Art US! I am a little upset about the gaps in the black Fuji letters. I poured the resin too deep at one shot and it cracked under the heat. I wasn't sure how to fix it. This was a first try, so you live and you learn. Views are views right?

I've put out a video on my YouTube channel that will walk you through programming and cutting my threaded wasteboard step by step. Remember, you need Carbide Create version 316 for toolpaths to show up. Happy cutting!
Who doesn't love a good woodworking shop tour? This is the first year I've done a shop tour. In 2018 I blew out a wall and wen't from 10x16 to 16x20. It was quite the transformation from what used to be here. I never intended to do any woodworking when the original shop was built. I've had to get creative with storage solutions. I also added insulation towards the end of 2018. Here's a tip, insulate from the start! It saves you money in the long run, and it will go much faster when you don't have to take everything down and put it all back up.
Let me know if you have any questions in the comments below.
Enjoy the video.

Content creation is not easy. It takes a lot of time and effort to create content that is helpful and entertaining. With a full time job, a wife, and two young boys there's not much time to devote to the craft I love. You'd be surprised with the amount of messages, dm's and texts that i receive at all hours of the day asking for help. I love it. If you've been one of those that reached out, I hope you've come away with the answer you seek and the feeling of value. It's not easy to be on call, especially when it's unpaid.
Many of you have been purchasing my files from Etsy as a way to give back. If you're one of these, I thank you! You could have easily gotten them for free and choose to support my work. Your support has gone a long way!
I've decided to open up a Patron page as a way for those who want to continue to support my work. I could do it alone, but it's much easier (and happier) to take the journey together. I have no clue where this path will go. I'm excited to see what the future holds. Thanks for supporting me on this journey!
When you want a consistant X and Y zero point the best way to do that on the CNC is by using a fence. I've designed a fence to fit into my custom wasteboard. Now you can get consistent clamping and zeroing with large or small pieces.
