For technology, that’s ancient, and it really hasn’t changed much! It’s time for something new… something better… something easier… a lot easier
what is it?
It’s called a “cut center” and it’s really different. It makes virtually everything a cabinet shop needs, but there is no programming. That’s right, no computer, no software and no programming…none….EVER !
A cut center doesn’t need programming because it already knows how to make cabinets, closets, furniture, doors, drawers, moldings and more…. thousands and thousands and thousands of designs. Just tell it what you want and it makes it, the size you want and the way you want
Thermwood has just announced the very first cut center, called "Cut Ready". This amazing new technology has already been discovered by the business media and is being featured on Fox Business News, Bloomberg Television, Bloomberg International Europe and Bloomberg International Asia multiple times this summer and fall
The amazing thing about this machine is that it can be run by just about anyone, no special training, no special technical skills. This is manufacturing for the average person
Now cabinet shops can remain cabinet shops and not be enslaved by technology. It installs and you are in full production in a couple of hours. It can be run by your current folks and make you a ton of money

Thermwood's Profile Modeler allows you to quickly create a molding or custom shape from a sketch or drawing on a Thermwood CNC Router with no special shaped tooling required.
This video demonstrates using Profile Modeler to create a custom curved cherry molding from Sketch - to Profile Modeler - to Machine - to Completed Shape.
Steps used in the video:In eCabinet Systems:
- Verify the measurements
- Create the shape using Shape Manager in eCabinet Systems
- Create Tool
- Apply Tool to create Shape
On Thermwood QCore SuperControl:
- File loaded into Profile Modeler on QCore SuperControl
- Verify Tool Path
- Run Program
- Machining Part (Roughing/Finishing/Detail Passes)
- No special shaped tooling required - Tools Used: 1/2 Straight, 1/2 Ballnose, 1/8 Ballnose, 1/8 Flat
- Completed Shape

Thermwood has developed our new Five Axis Alignment Verification Routine which is used to record and populate the alignment measurement values into the Thermwood QCore control system (after machine alignments are manually performed).
This routine automatically checks alignment in multiple axes and allows alignment to be quickly verified between jobs. The routine compares the measured values to the default values.
The Thermwood 5 Axis Alignment Verification Routine includes:
- Renishaw high-tolerance tooling sensor
- Precision ground pin
- Dedicated tool holder
- Collet and all mounting hardware.
For more information on the Five Axis Alignment Verification Routine, please contact us at 1-800-533-6901.

Featuring the New Barb Dado Joint:
We have a CabinetShop 43 production cell at our Booth # 5153 demonstrating the new Barb Dado Joint. This is a new development at Thermwood that we have applied for patent protection on. The joint is a modified version of the Blind Dado joint in which we machine a series of barbs in the mortise slot. When you press the parts together, the barbs bend down, bending the fibers in the wood downward firmly holding the pieces together. It is a lot harder to pull it apart than to put it together. This means you can assemble cabinets without screws, clamps or any other fasteners.
This simple idea is pretty revolutionary. We have a video from another project which shows how a cabinet is assembled using the barb dado joint. You can find it at:
If you are in the Wichita, KS area, come check out the Thermwood booth at the SAMPe Fall Technical Conference. The conference runs through October 21st. Thermwood is Booth #810. We have posted pics on our Twitter account

We've created a couple of videos demonstrating the superior performance of the CabinetShop 43 in a variety of applications. The first is the Carving of an inset carving, and the second is Cabinet Cutting.
About the CabinetShop 43: The CabinetShop 43 offers premium performance not normally seen at this price point. For example, it has positioning speeds to 3,180 inches per minute and programmed cutting speeds to 2,250 Inches per minute. The actual speed at which you can cut is determined more by tooling and material than by the machine, but its speed is indicative of the overall solid CNC performance of the CabinetShop 43.
