    Man, I wish I had a CNC machine. But I do own a scroll saw (the thing he was using in the beginning of the video). Scroll saws are awesome for one-off art project-type stuff.

    Put another way, I’d rather have fretwork in my home that was cut by hand on a scroll saw (or with a manual fret saw) than some laser-cut, mass-produced stuff. But for what this dude was doing, the CNC is unbeatable. Every day would be a party in my house if I had a CNC machine. Just me, a glass of booze and a bunch of laser-cut bits of stuff piled around me. ;)

    I think what I’m getting at here is, thanks for the video. It’s a cool project and Xeni: seriously. Thank you for publishing these kind of videos. SERIOUSLY. Holiday kisses for you (I mean that in a good way, like when a daschund licks your hand… not like when a hairy dude from the Coast Guard bumps the nearest port and wants to lick your hand).

    I should be clear, by the way, that I was in no way suggesting anything untoward about the use of Red Robot; I was merely being, like I said, all pedantic and quibbley.

    Folks who aren’t R. or Sam frequently seem to ignore Sam’s part in the greatness that is Red Robot C-63

    Ooh, thanks for telling me about Dog Hates ME! I had somehow completely missed its existence until now.

    “To be all pedantic and quibbley, that particular robot is a character that R. Stevens borrowed from another webcomic, Sam Brown’s Explodingdog.”

    Technically it is a character that they share. The two have worked together going all the way back to when they were neighbors in college.

    Zero drama as far as I’m concerned, dude!

    Pedantry is sometimes correct! Sam and I do share variations on the Red Robot.

    m3m has good data! sam and i used to live across from the same ghetto hartford police substation.

    his sites are:

    http://www.doghatesme.com/

    http://www.explodingdog.com/

    the first one is brand new and kind of amazing.

    On the other hand, the particular pattern being cut is clearly R. Stevens’ version of Red Robot C-63.
