I’m finally getting around to building a CNC router for the shop. The first requirement for such a machine is a solid and stable foundation. Due to limited shop space, I constructed the base on casters so I can move it around. The ‘pod bay doors’ on one side provide access to a ventilated cabinet for the electronics.
The top surface is constructed as a 2 1/2″ thick torsion box with birch plywood skins for extra rigidity.
The other side will have 5 drawers for storage of end mills, collets, tools and supplies.
Next week we’ll begin constructing the rails.
