Re: Are CNC machines ready for Fine Woodworking?

As a person whose been in the technology industry all my adult life, I am intrigued by CNC machines. I think it would be fun to have one. However, as a hobbyist I cannot really justify the cost at this point. Either way, I don't think it would change how engage in this hobby that much.

What bothers me most is the fact that with a CNC, my hands and eyes are not on the work in any way. With a table saw, a band saw, heck - even a chop saw, my hands and eyes are on the wood. When I hand cut dovetails, or carve a ball & claw foot, my hands and eyes are on the work... but I am a hobbyist.

Perhaps that's why I enjoy this hobby so much (and don't really mind not having a CNC machine).
