CNC Woodworking job shops


Looking for recommendations on CNC-bases job shops that can handle small orders. By this I mean a few dozen parts rather than thousands of parts. Also, parts are not small, mostly several feet and made out of 3/4in MDF or 1/4 inch Luan ply.
No 3D countouring or surfacing required, mostly cutting to size, rabbeting, cut circular and rectangular holes, round-overs and some edge drilling on MDF pieces.
Preferably Los Angeles area but will consider other locations in the US. Need is immediate.
Some other desirables but not deal-breakers: - Quick turn (a week or two). - Can take SolidWorks files as first option - Or AutoCAD (DWG or DXF) files as second option.
Absolutely necessary are (in no particular order): - Must be able to hold reasonable tolerances (+/- 1/32" would be fine) - Will not fax or mail drawings, must be CAD - Must supply material - Don't want to talk to brokers - Must be smarter than the average bear - Nice people

I think if I'm not mistaken there is a CNC forum on WoodWEB? At least I think it would (if it exists) be a better place to pose this question.
Don't be surprised if you don't get an answer. Contract work is usually found by most people to be a real p**n *n th* ass.

Guess where occasional/short run contract work falls?
Your Mileage May Vary/a good customer works at being a good customer just as a good supplier/contractor works at being a good supplier/contractor.

Then they better stick with their CNC woodworking. Try metal sometime. The majority of machine work is short run contract. I've been doing it for near twenty years.

It is very difficult to reply to your inquiry when you don't provide a valid email address.

Just clicking "Reply" won't work. You have to do a little work. I get enough spam, thank you very much.

First off, replies to newsgroups don't need an email address and the information would be of interest to the entire group. Please post replies (which aren't specifically requested to be emailed) to the group, here.
Second, you hadn't noticed his key:

Replies to individuals DO require an email address. Since it was in reply to a possible job, I really don't see as it is anyone else's business but theirs.
