The Marshall brothers out of Point Pleasant, New York were able to change their wood shop, Marshall’s Millwork into a successful craft powerhouse be embracing automated production. The brothers used a CNC machine or Computer Numerically Controlled machine to complete rough cut work for their projects. The brothers used a ShopBot to allow the brothers to spend more time on finish work and open up new lines of products. The brothers are happy with their success and have plans to ex[and business beyond their region.
- CNC machines can help with production in wood carving. If you look you can find one that is affordable.
- Once you start using these machines, they can open up new ways to make money from carving that you didn’t have before.
- Putting a sign actually made in your shop on your truck can bring in a lot of business.
“Computer numerically controlled (CNC) machines were the perfect fit for this type of work, but at nearly $25,000 per machine the Marshall’s couldn’t afford the untested investment.”
