    Brand new and need a reference

    I am an avid wood working hobbyist but don't own a cnc machine. I am thinking of project for the wifey that would require one however. Can anyone recommend a shop that could do a small custom job in the inland empire? I am having no luck with google. Thank you in advance

    I want to take a solid wood surface roughly 18"x30" and route out my kids handprints about 1/2" deep to create a pocket. Then take a colorful hardwood like Padauk or Purple Heart and route out their handprints as inserts or inlays. That's the gist of it. Here is a video of where I got the idea.

    I was just starting to look into it. I'll get the handprints and send them. What's your email address?
