So for my birthday, I asked my dad to get me a CNC hardware and plans kit from www.buildyourcnc.com. Then I went to Lowes and the Home Depot to get a sheet of MDF, aluminum angles, threaded rods, and various other items I needed to make the machine. So the whole weekend last week, I’ve been working on cutting all the parts I need and then drilling all the holes in the pieces. Here is...
