This class has prerequisites. Please see below.

Use the VCarve Pro software program to design and cut an inlay on the Woodworking Studio's CNC router.
Each student will attend two sessions. For the first session, the class will meet in the Electronics & Technical Arts lab to review VCarve Pro, review/finalize design of inlay, and set up the CNC project.
The second session will be in the Woodworking Studio. Students will cut the materials (walnut and maple), and glue them up. The instructor will then show students how to cut off the excess inlay material and sand the inlays using a sample cut so students can do the same to their project at their leisure after the glue has dried.
