CNC Equipment

Chris took 4 short videos showing the action of the “CNC” machine. (AKA Computer Numerical  Control) This equipment is state of the art technology that greatly improves your satisfaction with your granite countertops. The computer converts the design produced by computer aided design software (CAD) into numbers.  Numbers can be considered to be coordinates of a graph and the control the movement of the cutters.  The computer controls the cutting and shaping of the material resulting in a much higher quality edge detail. Some manufacturers are still doing this work with hand held routers.  The CNC saves processing time which saves labor which lowers your cost. Notice in the video that the machine applies water constantly to the cutting surface to lower the temperature of the machine and the granite.  The CNC has a large selection of tooling to give you exactly the edge you want on your countertop.

The Home Office Trend Is To Customize Space

The Home Office Trend Is To Customize Space For The Entire Family There was a time when the ‘home office’ applied solely to corporate executives.  Traditionally defined by wood-paneled walls, large oak desks and leather-bound chairs; this space was dedicated to the head of the household as his “office away from the office.”  With the explosion of remote employees and work-from-home businesses, this once ‘exclusive’ room is now used by any family member. More than employment, it’s the family place to do everything from paying monthly bills to homework assignments.  Custom cabinetry is the best option to increase both safety and efficiency. Let me explain… Safe and Secure, or Open to All? The business office: How cabinets are placed for security is more important than ever. They may need to be high enough to stay of children’s reach, or come equipped with locks for sensitive documents and files. To maximize efficiency, office cabinets can be customized with built-in file dividers and holders…and have as many drawers as needed for whatever ‘tools’ the work requires.
