CNC tree


My internet friend, David Erwin, had a crisis on his hands; the Christmas tree was a “brown, shedding, fire hazard and it ended up in the front yard on the 23rd.” Well, being a ShopBot owner (as well as the owner of the best darned mid-century modern door company out there, Crestview Doors) he did what any good maker would — he CNC’d a tree out of styrofoam! Go David!!
