At 2006 Maker Faire
“We’ve been using our ShopBot to make
things we wished existed. Last December
we made our own Christmas tree that we
designed together and cut out of plywood.”
Because We Can…
Jeffrey McGrew and Jillian Northrup, founders of Because We Can, had
a vision for making their unique products. She’s a graphic designer and
photographer. He’s an architect with a background in construction. They
wanted to combine their creativity and design skills with the new technology
of computerized cutting and fabrication. They needed a low-cost, easy-to-
use, computer-controlled tool called a CNC machine.
ShopBot was the answer.
”A ShopBot is a great fit for the creative work of people like us. We didn’t want
to spend a lot of money or try and house a big piece of equipment. We just
wanted a simple, yet powerful CNC router to help us m eet
our needs for precise cutting, drilling, shaping, and carving.”
