CNC FURNITURE MAKING:

 Making furniture is an art in itself! When you reproduce an antique style piece of furniture or put a modern twist on a trusted favorite style you get a sense of accomplishment from your efforts. Not to mention a buck in the bank if you sell your items too! 

Every tool in woodworking has been dependent on the craftsman who does it. CNC is just another tool that is now coming down to the price point where small shops and even hobbyist can think about getting into the CNC pool.

There is no less creativity in using a CNC than using a block plane and knife simply because the design is dependent on the woodworker. However the operator has to understand really, the piece they are working with and really see the part or final piece inside the wood they want to produce. It really comes down to time. 

So for now, lets us see if you can make a Parametric shelf as shown in pictures below using CNC machine.

 Can u build your own Parametric Shelf?!

Second Prize: A Gift Coupon worth Rs.1000/- at eCNCshop!

Deadline: 28.11.2019
