It is often said that words of wisdom come from the mouths of babes...
The other week one of my sons mentioned that he wanted to build one of my First Mate designs. I was full of enthusiasm and told him that I'd build one too, and maybe I could arrange to have the parts for both boats cut by CNC.
He looked at me and said, "Marking and cutting is easy and fun - can you arrange to have the sanding and painting done by CNC instead?"
First Mate is a nice boat - you can see more designs on my website here.
