Welcome to the forum Andres . Your budget is kinda small , and members are going to need a bit more information regarding the size of cutting area your looking for etc .
Is this a bench top design , or a 4'x4' , 4'x8' size?
Your going to need a fairly rigid gantry if your cutting aluminum and copper , and the price of T-slot extruded aluminum is very expensive, at least here in Canada .
Not that you've introduced yourself , I would post this topic in the CNC thread area where it will receive more views .

I joined a forum called Joes CNC , it costs $75 US to join , but it was as well worth it for the knowledge I gained .
They scratch build CNC router tables there , and Joes figured out how to build the best quality cnc for the least amount of money from what I've seen .
Nowhere under 2K though, even with V bearings . He's designing a system with linear bearings right now , and those alone are a couple thousand dollars.
Ideally you should have a dedicated computer, and the software is going to add up also .

Check out Richards build ^^^

He made an amazing machine for the least amount of money I've ever seen . He bought himself extruded aluminum from a place that sells it used , so that saved him money there . If you could find something simular where you live it may help a lot with your build .
I'm sure Richard would be more than happy to help you with questions on how to build a quality machine on a small budget. $2000 Isn't going to cut it though
