Nice CNC cut end table

Nice build, but…you need a full size 8×4 CNC to cut this one out. In other words this is for a pro shop. Or maybe a makerspace https://www.instructables.com/id/Bed-Table/

Make a CNC zen garden

I have seen a few other builds like this in the past. Me…the author should next automate the CNC to do patterns. https://www.instructables.com/id/100-Zen-Garden-CNC-Table-Powered-by-Arduino/

Clever tank tread build

The design (that you can 3D print out) uses plastic BB’s as the fastener and bearing for the tread.

Nice looking CNC plotter from CDROMS

Nice looking plotter build. I was a bit leery about the “cheap” cost of this when I saw a dedicated motor controller board for the arduino. Til I found it on banggood for 3-4 dollars.

Nice 3D print accessories for your quick clamps

I wonder if they will fit on harbor freight ends too. I bookmarked this one to try a few prints out and see if they do. https://www.instructables.com/id/More-3D-Printed-Gadgets-for-Woodworking/

Print out your own Dust Collector

This was too amusing. The author basically designed and 3D printed out a dust collector vacuum. Me…I think I would just make one out of scraps. https://www.instructables.com/id/3D-Printed-Vacuum-Cleaner-for-a-CNC-Machine/

Make a POV display

Using an Arduino nano, some LED’s, and a 3D printed out spinner. Nice build overall. https://www.instructables.com/id/Persistence-of-Vision-PoV-Display-Using-Arduino/

Print out a glass bottle cutter

I actually have one of these from a kickstarter project from years ago. Its a nice build but I think you need a good sized 3D printer to print this one out (over 8 inch bed). https://www.instructables.com/id/3D-Printed-Glass-Bottle-Cutting-Tool/

Cool mini 3D printed CNC laser engraver

Nice build, I like the re-use of the CD-ROM motors, but I am not so sure about using lasers. Drill motors I can handle but lasers make me a bit nervous. Either way the STL files for the build are … Continue reading

Interesting CNC build

Author uses 3D printer to make the ends for the frame. Nice build overall. Not sure if I would go with this over MP CNC. Bit pricey of a build with some of the parts he uses. https://www.instructables.com/id/DIY-3D-Printed-Dremel-CNC/
