Default JMP and fence - work created

For those that have a JMP/JMPv2 and the precision fence; what sort of work do you build? Besides the amazing chess set does anyone have any pictures?

I have a friend who is looking to do some woodworking. He has diminished range of motion and some loss of arm/hand strength. We have looked at carving and turning and it really didn't inspire him. I think the JMP would be a great tool as he has taken an interest in shoji.

Cheers

Shawn, as I'm sure you know, the JMP is an amazing machine, producing smooth, precision cuts like nothing else I've ever seen. But, a lot cutting with it can be fatiguing to both the hands and arms. I suggest that your friend spend some time working on a JMP before making the investment.

On the other hand, working on a JMP regularly just may increase his hand and arm strength.
