“ CNC stands for Computer Numerical Control. In wood-working it enables consistent and accurate automation of carvings using software. CNC manufacturing is flexible, fast, safe and cost-effective”.

Wood carving by hand is an ancient art and it takes years of dedication and learning to become a master carver. Carvers are artisans. Not everyone has the budget to commission hand-carved pieces and the best carvers have commissions booked many months in advance.

The automation of wood carving happened in the late 1980’s, but it wasn’t until computers became more powerful in the mid-1990’s that 3D wood carving in volume production was possible. ASJ’s CNC machine produces everything from simple, bespoke mouldings to three-dimensional carvings in both hardwood and softwood. We have many designs that customers can choose from, or we can take your own designs, upload pictures into our design program on the computer and output the carving. We can also reproduce a design from another piece so that you can match perfectly the skirting boards in your house with the new ones installed in a new extension. We can replicate infinitly and exactly a particular carving you already have in your home.
