Go get yourself some cheap pine - 2 x 4 or thinner and have fun experimenting and getting used to the machine - that would be my advice to you or anyone else who buys a Domino or either size.

But also have fun!  This just an appetizer.

I have the green bug and and bought my second and third [thumbs up] [thumbs up] . I picked up the ro90 and the ct midi. I tried it out and that garnet paper hogs off material quick. I am surprised there isn't more fog members close to me. If your out there let me know , it would be nice to meet others.
