A CNC router will allow us to cut shapes from substantial materials, such as solid wood, mdf, plywood and so on, as well as to cut materials that a laser cutter cannot handle (mainly metals, copper-clad board, aluminium and so on).

We've scoured the internet and have used a number of different designs for inspiration. At these early stages, we're putting together the bed and gantry before mounting the stepper motors and router tool.

The X axis (longest) rails will probably be the same as in this design: http://www.cncroutersource.com/support-files/cnc_router_jgro.pdf
