New: Powerful Words   1 comment

When I decided to buy a CNC, this was one of the first ideas that I wanted to make.

After spending most of my career in journalism, I have an affinity for the written word. And I’ve always been struck by the complexity and beauty of the type setting machines first employed by newspapers. (See what I did there? Struck by typesetting? Humor, coming at you!)

Words are powerful.

These word blocks are 3-dimensional carvings. Each requires about 30 minutes on the CNC, which uses 2 different routing bits when I make them. All of these shown are all made from Cherry, AKA Black Cherry or American Cherry. There’s a 2nd batch now in production made from Redwood … but that’s a story for another day.

I’ve made over 30 words, which I have in stock. You can buy these, or you can order your words as well. I can still make special orders for holiday delivery.

I struggled with how to price these (by the letter? by the inch?), and finally settled for simplicity. Each block is $35, regardless of length. There is a volume deal: 2 words for $60, and 3 words for $75.
