A buddy at work made himself a CNC router - not just any CNC router, his is capable of something like 5' and he can index points to enable even bigger. He's added water cooling so he can do deeper cuts and do aluminum & other metals in addition to wood.

He made me this sign to hang in my garage -- how cool is that!!

That's cool, Rob. I bet he could make a few extra bucks on the side doing those for folks.

The guy who made this for me is a co-worker. Awesome guy - very talented. I mentioned to him I was going to post it & that he might get inquiries. If anyone is interested, let me know & I'll pass on his contact info. Whenever I get the time to make the some threshold plates, he's going to engrave the MG logo with "safety faster" script for me.
