Inside the Studio
Digital Meets Physical
At Hufft, we marry traditional, hand-crafted work with progressive and equally sophisticated digital technologies. We combine these skillsets to create projects that speak to a future language of craft. A 5,000 pound American born CNC (Computer Numerically Controlled) router, lovingly nicknamed ‘Tiny’, has taken up residence at Hufft. The machine is capable of cutting a variety of materials including solid wood, acrylic, and aluminum to accuracies of 1/1000 of an inch; approximately the width of a human hair. These abilities are utilized to expedite the production of cabinetry by cutting and pre-drilling componentry. The same abilities are also tasked in the creation of complex three dimensional geometries used for experimentation and decorative purposes. The Digital Studio marries craftsmen, software, technicians, engineers, architects, and artists to create individualized and expressive works.
