I ordered my kit and parts last night, so my CNC journey is officially underway. I’m super ecited to get started with this. I’ve got lots of CAD experience, some woodworking experience, but zero CAM or CNC experience. So this should be fun!
Like many of you, I’ll be posting my progress here.
I’d like to start out asking for some feedback. I’ve got a super simple table design I put together in Sketchup, and I’d like to know if you think it has any obvious flaws. The legs are 36 inch long 4x4s, the top frame is 2x3’s on 12" centers, and the table top, which I was planning to use as my spoil board, is just 3/4" MDF board. Or should I have a separate spoil board on top of the MDF? And if so, do I then need to recess the MDF to be flush with the 2x3 side panels?
Table dimensions are 44" x 75" for a 3’ x 5’ cutting area (per the calculator).
