  1. Are there any members in the Phoenix area who are interested in having the name of your child or grandchild or a short nursery rhyme or saying carved into the front or lid of your WFC toy box? I believe this is a worthy cause however I do not have any young children to make one for so I would like to help in some way.

  4. Hi Todd Just wanted to take a moment to say thanks for your contribution to the forum. and to add what little knowledge I have about textures. Textures can be purchased on line for about $10.00 to $25.00 each. You can also create textures from Gray scale images. (Bark & Brick). Or with modeling software you can create artistic forms. (Waves)

  19. We have a queen size pedestal bed frame that is 35 years old (see pictures attached). There are scratches and wear on the side rails. I would like some advice on refinishing it. Does it need to be sanded down to the bare wood? I believe the wood is either pine or fir. Do you think that it would be cost effective to have someone refinish it? What would be a reasonable fee to have it refinished? Any comments are appreciated.

They range from 400 cfm to 1200 cfm. Some with 5kw heat strips (208/220v) others have a hot water coil (110v) . For more Information try Free to forum members / local pick up
  23. Hi Joe Just brain storming but you may have more success with the CAD / CAM forums. CNC ZONE , McSoft, Mach 3, Artcam, Rhino to name a few. 3D printing is hot right now and would be a good place to start. Best of luck
  24. Hi Jens My wife asked me to make a few Christmas ornaments for her Sunday school class. The idea was to make something the kids could decorate themselves. I used a .375 90deg V-bit @ 12,500 rpm 2.5 IPM for the inside lines , and a .125 end mill for the cut out. 10 down 60 to go.
