  • CNC Router

    Hi guys.

    I am seriously thinking about getting a CNC router and would like some input.
    The wife wants me to make new doors for the kitchen cabinets and there are a lot of doors to make. So I figure she can have new doors and I can get a new toy.

    So do I buy one or build one. I see quite a few plans on the net and they don't look that difficult to make but I am not a big fan of using MDF which is what I see on most plans. I want something that has a 24" X 48" cutting area some of the doors are 36" tall.

    Servos or steppers?
    Which software?

    Any other thoughts throw them in too.

      Maybe after I finish with it I'll send it to you because I have no idea where to put it. I guess her car is going to get kicked out of the garage. LOL

        Well since yours is already out the door--- what's fair is fair right? After all it is her project. I'm sure you can live with the cabinet doors the way they are.

          You hit that nail on the head Mike. I can live without cabinet doors if I have to. LOL

              Well ... I am SO glad we tempered our enthusiasm. Show is cancelled. Apparently, things did not go as planned. Maybe next year.
