Here is a picture of the CNC router I am currently building. I’m working very slow on this as I make changes as I go. When done, it will have a workable area of 36”x72”. I hope to be able to cut aluminum with this and it may undergo modifications to make that happen. I examined and studied several designs and tried to incorporate the best features of each; mostly I tried to beef up the structure. I consider this a test bed for further development.

Looks good so far. I’ve wanted to build a CNC router table for a while now. One modification I want to make is to build a 2nd gantry with a plasma cutter instead of a router…

That’s really cool. As I was looking at it, I was thinking to myself that it looked a little like an air hockey table, and then I thought, heck, you could make one from an air hockey table, and maybe even figure out how to use the air holes as a vacuum chuck!

You really don’t need a second gantry; just an interchangeable router mount. The table would have to be a grid work of steel bars.

This is awesome work. I can’t wait to see the progress. Do you have a blog going or are you going to update here?

I started a blog on a CNC build. I’m not too good at putting together a blog as I’m a bit computer challenged, but bear with me.
