Once I completed the CNC router I was asked to make 120 finials for a local theaters set.This is a simple design I put together to test out and show the set designer before cutting all of them. The base is sized so that it can be friction fit into 1/2 conduit. I learned some lessons about designing for CNC routers with this project.

I have been making since I was a child long before "making" was a thing. I have always had a habit of taking things apart but only sometimes putting them back together. When I was 8 years old or so I took apart the families video camera and couldn't get it back together. Now I tend to turn the things I take apart into something new. I have over 10 years experience building sets, making props, and designing and rigging stunts for the stage.
