Here is a photo of the ShopBot CNC (computer numerical control) Router system that enables me to create projects in any shape or pattern you can imagine. We can use any high quality photograph (jpg format) to create any shape you might desire. Once the photo is converted to the correct format for the system, the parts of the photo or all of the photo can be used to make cutouts.
The system uses a high speed router connected to the computer. The computer tells the router precisely where to go, how deep to cut and any details we might want to add. Should you want lettering added, that is done using a separate path.
Recently we have began using this system to actually drill the tracks holes. The cribbage tracks are laid out in CoralDraw, then saved in proper format and the system does all else. This enables me to basicly create any style track that I need to and keep all the holes straight and evenly spaced, creating a very professional looking product.
