The heart of our business is a powerful design software package linked to a computer numerically controlled (CNC) router. This combination of high-tech equipment provides many benefits to you, as the customer.
First, it allows us to be more creative in the design process as we can fashion complicated parts that cannot be cut with standard woodworking equipment without time-consuming set-up and testing. This results in lower costs for many projects.
Secondly, it allows us to cut complicated shapes to very tight tolerances and ensure that the first piece and the last piece are identical. The designs are kept so that future orders are exact duplicates of the first order.
Thirdly, it allows us to complete very accurate inlays quickly and consistently. Our inlays can be reproduced and allow for inlay material much thicker than used in the normal veneering process. The project can then be sanded and/or repaired in the future if an accident occurs. Also, the machine inlay process drastically reduces the amount of man-hours involved, making the custom project more affordable.
Finally, the CNC router provides great three dimensional carving capabilities. As with the inlay process, hand carving is cost prohibitive for many customers. Using great graphic design software, attention to detail in the design process, and succeedingly smaller router bits we approach the effect of hand carving. Of course, the final step in the carving process is finishing the carving using hand chisels and the the application of finer grits of sandpaper.
