    Thomas Bennett controls the Computer Numerical Controlled (CNC) router during Carpentry/Joinery 11/12 in block A.

    Thomas is machining the components for a folding love seat that started out as a two dimensional PDF file which he has converted, imported, sized, and adjusted on the computer to suit his needs. He has invested a total of 2 hours of machine time so far, with plenty to go! Thomas is machining 3 layers of birch plywood which he laminated using a large vacuum bag set up. Each part takes approximately 25 minutes to cut out.
