Making a CNC Carved Altar Pedestal: Andrew Pitts-FurnitureMaker


Using the ShopBot Desktop and Vectric Aspire software, Andy carves a grapevine and letters into a red oak pedestal to be used to hold flower arrangements in religious services. Also shown is the use of Festool Domino joints on the mitered corners of the pedestal.
