What is a V bit?

If you are a hobbyist, then chances are you've heard of the term "v bit" and maybe even have one or two in your toolbox. But do you know what they're for?

Cutting Board

Here is a end grain cutting board that I made with a wood kit that I bought from amazon. I ended up engraving my last name in it and sending it to my mother for mothers day.

Lord of the Rings CNC'ed wood carving Sign

This is a sign I made for in request of my wife. She wanted a Lord of the rings sign that said Speak friend and enter for our home. I used a cheap walnut board I had gotten from my local wood shop. I cut it in half and glued it. Then I used my 60 degree FOOS CNC bit and carved it .2 inches and this is how it came out. She really loved it. I only used 100 percent tung oil to finish it and I think it came out amazing and she loved it!

What's the best CNC?

What's the best CNC? Not an easy question. It really depends on your needs. You are going to have ask yourself what you want to accomplish with your CNC. For most of us.

Lots of things to do before I start advertising and it really seems overwhelming and that I defiantly bit off more than I can check but I like to think I
