    Good going Tom, you have always showed the spirit necessary to make great projects, as well as your painting abilities. Keep up the great work, and enjoy what you have accomplished.

    Congratulations Tom.
    You are an inspiration. It seems like I am about to write this off as a hobby as I didn't do so well on Christmas sales this year.
    Reading this gives me hope that I can convert my cabinet shop to a cnc shop.
    I know you put lots of time, effort, blood, sweat and tears to get where you are.

    Well Done !!!

    As stated already....Great article Tom. Having meet you and visited with you in your shop I can testify to all the hard work you put into making your business a first class business. Only a person that loves what he is doing can spend the countless hours and hard work you've put into making a business grow like yours has. Wishing you more success in the coming year(s).

    I am humbled by your comments, thank you so much everyone! You are so kink. You should hear my shop when I have my large cnc and two of my carvewrights going last month all at once, so glad I now wear ear muffs and a dust mask. There is much talent on this forum, Thank you all!! It is so much fun to create these carvings for my customers and learn new techniques every time. Anyone can get sales from marketing your business. I don't pay for any advertising. I just show my carvings at local networking groups, Facebook, Pinterest, a blog and a good website. Everything links back to my website. Have fun!
