Larry Quisenberry says he doesn’t do fancy projects with CarveWright, but when looking at his work, you can see a completeness in concept that isn’t ordinary. When Larry takes on a project, he really takes it all the way.

Prop makers love the CarveWright CNC system for it’s speed and ease of making 3D objects out of durable materials. Whether they are making productions molds for a large run, or a one-off custom piece, the possibilities are endless. October always seems to be my prop month being costume season and all. This year, I’m […]

For those who have been following the Build Blog for awhile, you’re probably familiar with The Library CarveWright Built. If not, start with that and then come back to this article. The library bookcases and paneling with all the detailed carvings were completed a couple of years ago, but this didn’t finish the room. It […]

I’ve been seeing a lot of cool “how I made it” videos lately of all kinds of projects. The accessibility of quality cameras, editing software, and the platforms to broadcast them has made it so easy. The only trick is to just get started and make things. So I did. Recently on the Carvaholics Facebook […]

Woodworking is nothing new to Glenda Edwards of Idaho Falls, Idaho. Her father and brother are both carpenters, so working with tools was something she was very familiar with. Then about fifteen years ago, Glenda started hosting monthly DIY parties at her home for fellow crafters to come do projects together. This eventually turned into a […]

After retiring from a career as a Los Angeles County Deputy Sheriff, Jack Boggio began his woodworking hobby by making furniture for his church. He initially purchased a CarveWright CNC System to enhance that furniture, but quickly expanded it’s use into his other areas of interest. One Christmas, Jack saw a toy carousel and was […]

Dick started woodworking as a kid in his dad’s basement shop, cutting cartoon characters out of plywood with a scroll saw and painting them.  He took a semester of wood shop in high school, but otherwise was self taught by reading woodworking articles and gradually tackling more complex projects.  He built his shop and skills […]

It’s costume season again! Last year I was asked to outfit a group of friends with weapons for their Roman god costumes. It was a lot of fun and a huge success. They all loved the weapons so much, they asked me to do it again this year for their barbarian/viking theme. I gladly accepted […]

Written by: Connie Ratisseau Brent Hutchinson of Springtown, TX began his CarveWright experience the way many other customers have done. He bought his first machine in July of 2012 for a specific job, which he had been “almost guaranteed”. As a CarveWright employee, it always scares me when someone has a deadline before they ever […]

My journey with guitars started when I was 15.  I, of course, wanted to be a rock star. I already had some musical training, starting with piano at age 6, and moving to saxophone in middle school.  I never got excited about these instruments like I did the guitar though.  I taught myself how to play […]

Like most “Creatives”, Jeremy Harmon’s talents spill over into many different mediums and utilize various tools to see their visions come to life. In 2014, he added a CarveWright to his tool set. Already a woodworker building new furniture from reclaimed materials and repurposing old furniture, Jeremy was eager to see what the CarveWright could […]

A couple of years ago, I was asked to work on another project with sculptor Bridgette Mongeon.  You may recall the Best Of Big Taste Trophy I did with her back in May of 2015.  Bridgette is a really interesting artist.  She marries 3D technology with her more traditional hand skills into a very streamlined workflow.
