When I upgraded to the GarageworX CNC I had to build a larger cart for it and at the same time maximize the use of the space. This is the design that I came up with. It takes up a roughly 56” x 56” area and the front has a bank of 6 drawers for storage and the back of the cart is a vented area for the shop vac and chip separator that provides dust collection for my CNC. Of course what shop furniture isn’t complete with a little oak trim.

Thanks, it is a really nice to tool to have. I like to call it my little helper since it can be working on one thing while I work on another.

Great way to make good use of the space.

That’s a nice looking CNC and that base turned out beautifully. Congratulations.

That cart turned out really nice. I have been looking at getting a stepcraft CNC. Would love you to review your garageworx one, had never herd of that brand until now, guess I have some research to do now lol.

I haven’t done a review yet but will probably be doing on soon since I’ve had plenty of time to run it through its paces. This is also my third CNC that I’ve had in my shop so each one has been a progression and improvement on the last. This one is here to stay!
