2018 Shop Tour
June 4, 2018
My shop has gone through a whole bunch of changes in the last year, so it’s time for a look at what’s new. I approached this tour with the intention of focusing on the new stuff, so if you want to see the stuff I gloss over, check out my 2017 Shop Tour video.
Below, I listed as many of the tools as I could with links to where you can learn more and buy them for yourself. If there is anything I missed that you have questions on, please feel free to reach out to me and I will help you out the best I can.
The newest tool in my shop is an X-Carve CNC machine from Inventables and the timing of this is really cool, because Inventables just launched their latest maker challenge. Calling it the "Easel Power Hour," the idea is to use their free web-based software to to make the coolest project you can that can be cut out in under 60 minutes.
Some of these are affiliate links, and I can benefit from your purchases. Some of them are just so you can easily find the stuff you need.
You don't have to have a CNC machine to participate, just design your project and let Easel simulate it for you. Here is the link for the official challenge page and entry form.
11 Participants will get a $100 gift certificate, and one overall winner will win their own X-Carve ($1,500)!
