This is my Compucarve machine sitting on the cabinet that I made for it. The drawer front and doors were carved by the Compucarve machine. I was pretty impressed with the machines capabilities especially since this was my first attempt at using the machine. I built a dust collection chute into the cabinet to mate with the bottom of the machine. I then attached a 4” angled dust collection flange on the back. It works pretty well. The cabinet was made mostly from a free sheet of MDF that a friend gave me. I made the face frame,doors and drawer front from birch. Pocket screws were used to hold it all together. I then bought nice big dual-locking caster wheels on E-bay that lock from rolling and turning to keep it from moving when in use. I will build a similar cabinet next for my Dewalt planer. I just have to wait for another free sheet of MDF to come along with a future plywood order at my buddy’s cabinet shop. Nothing beats free materials and MDF works just fine for something like this.
