    Miniature furniture and CNC

    Hi, I've been reading a lot about the recent interest in CNC machines and how these can be used to make miniature furniture and have found some varied points of view both for and against using such a technique. I recently decided to take the plunge and buy a Stepcraft machine and I love it! I cannot say that one can use just this machine in isolation, but if used in combination with other tools like my Preac saw and even some simple hand tools like a miter saw and and x-acto knife, one can create some decent pieces of miniature furniture. Does this technique actually save time? In general, sadly not, however, the added precision more than makes up for the extra hours spent. I would say, the time saved in the actual cutting (which is flawless) is spent in designing on the computer and figuring out new ways to accomplish seemingly impossible tasks. I am relatively new at this so am hoping with time and skill this will go quicker, but every step is enjoyable and I approach it with anticipation and love, so I do not mind the extra hours spent. One thing I should mention, is it does save time for in carving and brings in a whole new level of complexity and detail to what one can accomplish. I thought of sharing with the community my recent pieces comprising a Davenport desk and an Eastlake Secretary. I'd love your feedback and comments. Thanks so much!
