The CNC Woodworker

Combinig woodworking & CNC Together

With over 5 years of experience running CNC routers and lasers in Aerospace manufacturing, we decided to build our own DIY router. Now our CNC router has completely taken over the shop in how we build.

Why CNC Router & Woodworking

With the love of building just about anything in our veins, we decided to turn that passion into teaching and giving back to others.

So why the CNC router. I was given the ability to cross train in Aerospace company in the CNC department.

Within this position, I was mostly trained on running a C.R. Onsurd router exclusive in aluminum applications. 

With my hobby of woodworking and the combination of seeing the capabilities of a CNC inside my woodshop. 

This sparked a curiosity in me to build the Arduino power CNC I currently run in my home workshop. 

Now I’m here to share my knowledge of CNC in a production environment and now blending that into a hobbyist CNC woodworker.
