I took some video of my homebuilt machine running to help encourage folks to keep their build going.
My machine isn't the best desing but it does work ok for what I use it for, and was very simple to build.
I'm running a server from home so if your having trouble getting the video it may be because others are getting it and you may have to try later.
The first video is me explaining what I'm going to do, starting the machine and the first few passes. In short I cut a slice out of a cedar log and I'm going to clear the surface with a 1.5 inch bit cutting at .2 inch each pass to prepare it for a sign. The second video is a shot on the back side later in the process (I hade to get away because the chips where flying !)
Later today I'm going to cut 8 nested 8" texas shaped bowles from pine boards and will record some parts of that.
So in short if I can build one you can too!
