Over the last 20 years creating woodworking projects as well as the last 13 years of creating online content I have tried and used a lot of products, software, and custom services. Below you will find a variety of the items that I personally recommend. I have personally used every item listed below. While this is not everything I have ever used in my career, the items below are the most relevant items that may be useful to you, your business, or workshop. My commitment to the community and my followers is I will never recommend a product that I do not use or like.


My CNC Machine:

Since 2014 I have been associated with Digital Wood Carver LLC. A CNC Manufacturing company based in Martinsville, Indiana. My personal CNC machine is their DWC2440 4-axis Pro CNC Model Unit.

​CAD/CAM Software for the CNC – While I have tried a few CAD/CAM software packages over the years, there is only 1 that I will ever stand behind and recommend. That is any product from Vectric LTD. Vectric VCarve Desktop, Vcarve Pro, and Vectric Aspire. For more information on this software visit

CAD Software – For years I have been using Sketchup as a great solution for visualizing my woodworking projects in a 3D environment.​

If you would like to learn more about Sketchup, I only have one recommendation. Visit and download the free version 8 he has linked and absolutely watch every single Sketchup tutorial he offers. By watching Jay Bates's tutorials this is how I learned and became proficient in Sketchup, and I have no doubt his tutorials can do the same for you.
