Several years ago, the company bought a cutting-edge machine to shape the seats of some of the chairs. Before that, they had been hand-carving them out of solid slabs, then they went to using a chainsaw to make the process leading up to the final sanding and shaping a little quicker and less stressful on the arms and hands. The next logical step was to buy a CNC machine to do some of that work.
I spend about half of my day on the computer and the other half on the shop floor. It’s a nice mix of thinking and doing that keeps things fresh.
