DIY CNC Router: How to Build from Scratch

Hello All,

Me and a friend of mine are enthusiast woodworkers (engineers and technicians by professions) and we have just completed building a CNC router after months of trial and error.

We have decided to share our knowhow on building one from almost everyday materials to finding the best tools around for almost dirt cheap or no cost at all!

For those interested to build their own CNC, just drop a comment on this thread.

AS I am not an engineer or a technician, just how difficult is this to build? And at what ballpark cost? While at one time computer literate, in my advancing years have become, let's say, not so! So that progresses to a question concerning ease of programming. Probably more guestions as of yet not thought of. Thanks.

Thanks for your offer. I think that this would be a great way to get into CNC routing which seems to be an upcoming trend.
