Donna, welcome to the Team. I don't do woodworking so I can't answer your questions but I'm sure someone can.

Water is very important for us. We may, and I do, require more than the 8 glasses a day. The link goes to a water calculator I use to see what I need for my current weight. Mt requirement has dropped 9 ounces due to weight loss. Yipee!

I have ZERO experience wood working but have several projects that an computerized router like the carvewright or the compucarve might make possible. Here are the projects I would like to do. 1) carve intricate decorative panels to make screens and sliding doors. 2) make matching crown mouldings and 3) carve insets for kitchen cabinet doors. 4) carve a design in a headboard

Am I crazy to even consider trying this?
1)How hard is it to learn to use these machines? A) How hard is learning the computer portion: is it easy point and click or am I going to have to spend hours pouring over instructions B) is it difficult to set the machine properly or feed the wood in?

2)Are the machines reliable? A) Are they expensive to repair when the break? B) Is it hard to find people to repair them? C) Do they break often?

3) Are they dangerous to use? Do they kick out sharp shards, will I loose a finger?

4) Are there any online classes or any chance of finding a local class? (I live in Boca Raton)

5) Finally, is one of these machines superior to the other? If so, which one do you think is better? Is one better for a novice?

I would love answers sent to my email address if possible:hrhdoodles@comcast.net. Please put woodworking in the subject line so I know your email is not spam. :D

THANKS!!!!
Donna
