To get a picture of how some shops use their CNC machines in unique ways, we chatted with Kristina Vanderwater of Bouncing Off The Walls in Alberta, Canada.
What does your shop do/what kinds of items and markets do you serve?
At Bouncing Off The Walls, we create meaningful, sentimental artwork and signs for nurseries, home decor, and businesses. We also supply sign backers and unpainted lettering to other businesses and DIY crafters.
What do you use your CNC machine for?
We use the CNC machine to cut out all of the names and lettering for our nursery signs as well as the shapes/backers for all of my resin artwork and signs. We also use it for engraving logos and designs into plaques or signs that require detail work.
How long have you been in business and how long have you owned your CNC machine?
We have been in business for 16 years and have owned our ShopBot CNC for 12 years.
What’s your favorite part about creating projects with your CNC?
I love the transition of taking an idea from initial concept and turning it into a piece that someone loves as well as the ability to create unique products.
