Jen Woodhouse: Artistry. Elegance. Craftsmanship.

  Inspired by Balinese carved wood furniture, Jen starts designing her Console Table with pencil & paper, makes it blossom into an elegant design in Easel Pro, and brings it to life with the X-Carve Pro CNC Solution.  This console table project, including the intricate carving done with the X-Carve Pro, took one weekend.
