My First Post - Warming up

Hi Y’all, I’ve had my shapeoko3 for about a month now and have made a whole heap of sawdust. There was a bit of a learning curve to overcome, but I’m well into the “running with scissors” zone. (aka: doing well, but overconfident!)

I’ve been a jack-of-all trades for decades now. Many years ago, I was an advanced AutoCAD user (first learned on Release 10 in the early 90’s!) The design comes naturally, but I get frustrated not having my muscle-memory commands available. Nonetheless, I’m satisfied with the fun projects I’ve made thus far. (so is the kid)


Hi Brian,

Welcome to the community!
I was certainly not making such nice pieces a month after I got my Shapeoko, kudos!
Looking forward to seeing your next projects.
