For Christmas Nigel got himself a cool new toy, called a desktop CNC (Computer Numeric Control) machine, or desktop mill. It makes stuff by drilling and cutting away from acrylic, wood, or metal, based on a CAD design on the laptop. The first thing he made was something for me -- this little acrylic plaque. Isn't it the sweetest thing?
I put it on a shelf out in the greenhouse, just in case (according to Nigel) I forget who I am while I'm out there.
Now I'm on the hunt for free clip art that can be adapted to be used with this neat new device.
