Any codger with a pocket knife can tell you about the lost art of woodworking.
Simpler times. Man and knife. Block of white pine.
Oh, and free time — but who’s got that these days? No one.
Example A: Carvey, a tabletop 3D woodcarving machine that pumps out objects in five minutes or less, available now for preorder.
Conceived by the Chicago-based handypeople at Inventables, Carvey is, like, the future of craftsmanship. It’s quiet. Precise. And unlike Grandpap’s knife, it can carve through materials like copper and brass.
And it’s amazingly simple to use thanks to Easel, the company’s super intuitive design software.
Go ahead and play around with it.
All you gotta do is click “Carve.” The beautiful aluminum box whirs. The razor-sharp needle drops and presto: your idea, actualized.
All scalable and repeatable. Sky's the limit. Just takes a little time to hone a new craft.
Till then, get to preordering.
