    2nd Build (first) - CNC Router

    Thread Starter: David Falkner

    Building my 2nd CNC first, I hope. I have been researching for over a year, read a thousand threads and articles, and am hopefully building my 'second machine' for my first.

    Thread Starter: Keith Miguel

    Hello Gentlemen I am a great admirer of Adam Cherubini and his writings and workmanship. I see that he no longer contributes on the Popular Woodworking website and his own website hasn't been updated for some time. Does anyone know how to contact him? Thank you

    Thread Starter: Myk Rian

    Underground utilities?

    Out here in California, there are small signs all over the place saying to call before you dig. The utilities do not charge and you are not liable if
