Carvewright technology was the subject of today's strand.  We watched a video tutorial that showed us how to use the carvewright machine and software and we were heavily supported by two over achieving 8th graders from Somerset Valley Middle School.  This project also springboarded us into the use of orbital sanders, compound miter saws and routers.  We just scratched the surface in terms of what the software is capable of and we learned some of the limitations of the machine.  Font is critical  when dealing with softwood projects, i.e. pine, spruce, cedar.  Understanding spacially what the picture/font will look like and will the routering and cutting effect the final product?

Very engaging, great job Keith!!
