First, welcome to the our forum.
I just finished up a project where the majority components were cut CNC.
The woods used are sugar pine and mahogany. The beams, brackets and bolts were degreased and sprayed with a rusting solution of 4 parts white vinegar, 1 part hydrogen peroxide and 1/2 part salt.
CNC is a tool not unlike any of the others we use.
It takes skill to program. The machine will do exactly as its told.
Like any other method there is always a possibility of error. Therefore IMO when the project turns out well the programmer/operator/designer deserves as much a "good on ya" as those using other methods.
You do great work. I'm looking forward to seeing more post from you.
When I die, I want to go peacefully like my grandfather did — in his
sleep. Not yelling and screaming like the passengers in his car.
