Routing has begun!

After getting the official "okay" from the Parks Board earlier this week, I've gone into full production mode! This weekend is the first weekend of routing letters. All the work is being done with the generous help of Randy Johnson, editor at American Woodworker Magazine. We are working in their shop in Eagan, MN and using their ShopBot router with a 4' x 8' bed. After setting up and some expected troubleshooting, we are in full swing. Everything is getting cut with the 1/2" end mill bit you see below. We've even found that stacking multiple sheets gives us super efficient cutting time- 3 pieces in one pass!

  1. That's awesome! Randy is a super guy. He's been a big help with us and our shopbot at The Mill.
