The creator of DIY Smart Saw loves to talk about the woodworking creations he has made. His website is filled with pictures of extravagant hardwood flooring systems, creative birdhouses, multifunctional desks, and all sorts of other simple and complex creations. He credits his woodworking prowess to something called a smart saw. That smart saw is the secret that lets you “turn any project you dream of into reality in a heart-beat.” Does that sound like science fiction? Well it’s not: it’s a smart saw. In this case, “smart saw” is used to refer to a CNC machine. CNC standards for computer numerical control. It’s basically just a saw that lets you plug in numbers and then carves a piece of wood according to your exact specifications. The machine moves exactly how you want it and your measurements are 100% accurate.
