I made my own CNC or Computer Numerical Control machine. I started with nothing but a set of plans I downloaded from the internet and only a vague idea of what it was. There was no kit for the parts – I had to buy every nut, bolt, and piece of wood myself. I spend an embarrassing amount of time building the bed which looked suspiciously like a pallet. The sad part was when I was finally finished (mostly) – tightened the last nut… I wasn’t even ready to use it. Someone made the first cut because I didn’t know how.
