Topic tags/keywords: cnc service

I’m getting ready to start construction on an Elliptical dining table. Does anyone offer or know where I can get some parts cut on a CNC? The finished size of my table is 65” x 75” with a split down the middle for leaves, so I need someone with the capacity to CNC a part 60” x 30” to handle each half of the table. The border parts are all much smaller, roughly 18” x 3”. finished table thickness will be 1-1/4” or maybe a bit thicker.

I’m thinking of either having MDF templates routed so I can pattern route my finished parts, or if I can find someone with the capacity to handle my parts just having them cut.

I can draw up the profiles in AutoCAD but would need someone to convert them to CNC code and cut the parts of course.

I’m located in Bucks County, PA. Ideally someone in Eastern PA, NJ or DE would be perfect.

Any leads would be greatly appreciated!

It may be easier just to cut out the ellipse yourself. Is there a particular reason you want it done by CNC?

There is, basically because of the complexity. f it were a simple elliptical top from sold wood I would definitely just cut it out. I’m making a Thorsen inspired dining table, so I need the center cut with a faceted edge, then all of the edge pieces to fit precisely, then the ellipse after I get it all assembled, then all the splines….seems like a good job for a CNC. Actually, what I’m really after is having the patterns for the above cut on CNC from MDF, then I can pattern route the parts.

I may just invest in a small CNC like the Shark and make up the patterns myself. If I carefully tile the parts for the larger patterns I should be able to make what I need on a small hoppy size CNC.

Thanks!

I see, it does sound complex. I wish you much success.
