Local Jasper, IN Boy Scout Toop #185 recently visited Thermwood to learn about how CNC Routers work. 

The scouts took a tour of the factory and then watched machining demonstrations on both the Model 45 and Model 43.  Each scout was able to take home a personalized Boy Scout emblem puzzle as well as a plaque with their name on it.

Cabinet Maker Expanding into Custom-Cut Furniture

Posted by Duane Marrett on Fri, Dec 21, 2012

Reprinted from The Wichita Eagle

WoodSong Cabinetry

Woodsong Cabinet & Trim at 100 W. 61st St. North Suite E in Park City, is expanding from commercial millwork into custom-cut furniture.

“I see a lot of potential with it to help diversify us into another line of work, which I think is very important these days,” said Carolyn Pierce, who owns Woodsong Cabinet & Trim with her husband, Randy.

Woodsong is now a YouBuild Cut Center. Customers can select a piece of furniture online and have it cut at the local store, with or without assembly.

The furniture styles are modular, and customers can pick the type of wood, configuration, dimensions and finish at www.YouBuild.com. The order is sent to the nearest YouBuild Cut Center for cutting and labeling.

The furniture is made of American-grown lumber plywood and is formaldehyde free.

“We’re excited about this,” Pierce said. “It’s just a really neat concept, and I think it has a lot of potential for the customers.”

The company, which has been in business since 1998, had seven employees last year and is now down to three, Pierce said.

They hope the new service and partnership will help the business and allow it to hire more employees.

“If YouBuild gets up and going, there’s potential there to look to expand again,” Pierce said.

The YouBuild program is affiliated with Thermwood Corporation, a manufacturing technology company based in Dale, Ind.

Woodsong uses a Thermwood millwork machine, and that’s how the business learned about the YouBuild program, Pierce said.

Woodsong’s business has focused mainly on clinics, pharmacies, schools and similar projects. A few years ago, the company focused on packages for restaurants nationwide.

“When the recession hit, the restaurant business was one of the first to take a hit in commercial building,” Pierce said. “Since then, we switched back to local contractors and a local focus.”

Now, Woodsong is looking for local businesses to help market the custom-cut furniture.

“It’s a fairly new concept. We’re looking for a design center to get the product out here into clientele hands,” Pierce said.

Before Purchasing Used, Consider a Thermwood Refurbished CNC Router

Posted by Duane Marrett on Fri, Dec 07, 2012

Tags: 3 Axis, 5 Axis, CNC Router, Refurbished, Used, Pre-Owned

Thermwood's CNC Router Refurbishment Program:
Thermwood Corporation’s Technical Service division has an ongoing machine refurbishment program that offers high-quality refurbished Thermwood CNC Routers at affordable prices. These machines are purchased by Thermwood and brought back to our facility for a complete refurbishment process.

Bring Your Used Machine up to Modern Standards:
This procedure not only applies to Thermwood owned machines, but also to customer-owned machines to bring them up to today’s standards.

Thermwood Refurbished Machine - What Do You Get?
Every one of these machines has been completely refurbished by Thermwood Corporation. They have been completely disassembled, sand blasted, painted and re-assembled back to new machine specifications. All components have been inspected and either refurbished or replaced with new components. Once the machine refurbishment process was completed, the machines went through the same quality control testing as a new machine. The machine has a 1-year parts and labor warranty.

Here are just a few of things that are typically replaced during the refurbishment process (these are valuable upgrades that you will not receive when purchasing a used machine from an after-market dealer):

  • Machine Worktable

  • Spindle

  • Wiring

  • Power Track

  • Servo Drives

  • Control System.


All Refurbished Thermwood CNC Routers undergo an extensive process:

Stripped down CNC Router before Thermwood Refurbishment

Step 1:  Machine stripped down to base metal


 Gantry primered for paint

 Step 2:  Machine gantry primed for paint


 Based primed for paint

 Step 3:  Machine base primed for paint


Gantry painted

 Step 4:  Machine gantry painted


Base painted

 Step 5:  Machine base painted


Machine re-assembled

 Step 6:  Repainted machine re-assembled and wired


 SuperControl Added

  Step 7:  New QCore SuperControl added


 New Spindle Added

 Step 8:  New spindle installed


 Options Added

  Step 9:  Optional equipment installed


 Vacuum plumbing added

  Step 9:  Vacuum plumbing added


 New table tops added

  Step 10:  New table tops added


 Adding the finishing touches

 Step 11:  Finishing touches added


 Completed Machine

  Step 12:  Completed machine!


Why buy a Thermwood Factory Refurbished Machine instead of a used CNC Router:

  • You’re buying a machine that has been factory-disasembled, re-assembled and inspected.

  • Any components that do not meet factory specifications are replaced, if there is any question of a component’s integrity, it is replaced.

  • All Refurbished machines come with a full factory warranty - This warranty is one-year parts and labor.

  • You are getting a machine that has been enhanced with the new QCore SuperControl with the latest version of Windows technology. This is the same control that ships with new machines, and is designed from its very core to operate a CNC Router with efficiency and higher productivity. It is a Quad Core processor 3.0 Ghz processor, full multitasking control.

  • You are buying a machine that includes a full 5-day operators training course located at Thermwood Corporation in Dale, Indiana.

  • You are not buying someone else’s problems caused by neglect, as can be the case with buying a used machine from another source.  These machines are fully disassembled, painted and reassembled back to new machine factory standards.

  • These machines go through a complete quality control inspection to insure each machine meets factory specifications before they leave the factory.

  • A full technical service division for service and parts supports all Thermwood Refurbished machines. This includes Free Lifetime Phone and Forum Support, Virtual Service, the ability to upgrade in the future, and support with program questions for your specific machine. One year Advanced Support is standard with all refurbished machines. 

  • You may also choose to list your company with our Free Production Sharing Service.
