What is a CNC Jamboree? We started out like a lot of you as hobbyist CNCers and in time became very serious about the craft, art, use and function of CNC equipment. Our goal here at CNC Jamboree is to offer affordable and valuable training to everyone. To share new hardware and software and introduce you to patterns & projects that will blow your mind. We will also share machine demos that will help you realize what a finely tuned and maintained CNC machine is capable of. The sky is no longer the limit.
What is a CNC Machine? Well you can use all kinds of techno jargon when it comes to this, but we choose to stay away from that and just say it like this. CNC is any device that is controlled by a computer. It could be a router, a laser, and embroidery machine, a long arm quilter (the list really does go on forever) … any number of things fit into this category.
Who can benefit from a CNC Jamboree? Anyone … In today's World CNC has become very affordable to hobbyists, artists, co-ops and small woodworking shops, it is on longer limited to large production facilities. The piece that was missing ... affordable training, we intend to fill tat void, our training will appeal to novice as well as expert users. We know that the initial cost can be low and people sometimes get caught up in the excitement of just taking a machine home and they leave it captive in the box (you people know who you are) we intend to empower you with the knowledge required to make worthwhile projects, to set your machine and your imagination free, to feel the power of creativity and unleash it onto the World.
Topics include ...
Enjoy Machine Demos by ... CarveWright, ShopBot Tools
and Some Kick A$$ "HomeBuilt" machines.
Factory reps will be on hand to show you all of the cool features on these amazing machines.

Joe Lovchick, Marketing Director, LHR Technologies ... Joe Lovchik has spent his whole life creating things. His artistic talent was discovered at a very young age as he was always drawing pictures and, even today, it is rare not to find a sketch of something on his desk that he has mindlessly doodled. Joe's passion for art led him to earn a Bachelors of Fine Arts degree from Wichita State University. During his early years in college, Joe worked as an art director for a major sportswear company where he gained knowledge in industry marketing and brand management. His career was further expanded as he spent the next 10 years working as Art Director for advertising agencies specializing in brand development. One such brand was a side project for his brother Chris, the inventor of a new personal-sized CNC now known as the CarveWright System. Read More Here.
Jason Allen, Founder of the CNC Art Guild and Owner of The Sign Mill (formerly LittleRedWoodshop) will be displaying "The Amazing Mobile Sign Lab" and he will demonstrate how he makes Custom Carved Signs While You Wait. www.TheSignMill.com
Jason purchased his first Hobbyist CNC machine about 6 years ago. “I researched the machine for a year (before purchasing) and I wish I hadn’t lost that time.” Jason is currently looking for a home for his multiple CNCs, a retail space that he will call the Sign Mill (more on that later).
That’s the beauty of it (CarveWright – hobbyist CNCs). Regular Joe’s like me from a variety of backgrounds can use it.” Jason claims to have “inherited his (fathers) tools, but not his talent.” One look at his work and it is obvious Jason has found his talent. Jason creates beautiful lithopanes (Greek word meaning “light in stone”) from Corian. His “Jesus Wept” and “Whole World in His Hands” Lithopanes cannot be appreciated in a photograph as they are in person with the light shining from behind his carvings. Jason considers himself to still be practicing. “I thrive on reactions…I always get a WOW. And that WOW is what keeps me working towards perfection.” Read More ...
