    Thank you.

    Students were involved.

    The art teacher designed the sign.

    I did the tool paths, since it was the first time. If I did more, I know the steps to bring the student make the tool paths.

    I did most of the machining, it was about 16 hours of machining over 2 days. I involved my machining classes in the process.

    My welding class build and welded the frame.

    Several art students painted the sign.

    Then the welding class mounted the frame.

    Looks like a great sign Greg, way to get the students and so many others involved! I try to get my kids involved now and then and the interest just isn't there. There is no shopbot at our school either.

    Hey Melissa,
    If you put an I in front of it and call it a I-Shopbot (like an Iphone, Ipod, Ipad) and stick an Apple logo on it maybe they will get interested.

    I know the feeling, my two older teenage grandchildren have no interest in working with wood or the shopbot but the younger 10 yr old has done 3 or 4 projects with me. I guess you have to start them off early.
