I have my CNC working very well and I'm getting orders. I'm thinking of hiring someone to run the machine. If anyone is interested in working from roughouts please let me know. I have been doing some math it I'm able to get a part 75% done for 40% of the cost on average. That is a constant 35% savings on your time not to mention not having to deal with logs, dirty wood and bark. I would love to build a bigger business around rough outs. We have the wood up here and the labor force help me help us make our lives easier.

Rough outs are working out vary nicely, im excited to get my normal production carving stock ahead so I can work on new designs and more interesting things to carve and then scan those to! Not having to deal with the logs, dirty bark, sharpening the saws more because of the dirty bark, less clean up and they come out consistently nice. Getting ahead means I can dry them more and sell a better product. Scanning and milling my own design makes it easier to finish because I already know how it should look. The other nice thing is I can scan any thing I carve, so I can have 3 scans of the same type of bear so they look a little different. or scan something roughed out with some extra room to make adjustments to each one. It's the way to go if you can't keep up on your inventory also saves you from needing to hiring some one. To top it off its a part of the job that would be a lot harder to find someone to have the skill to do it, so if you do hire some one they can still do the finishing work...
