Welcome, Brittanie. There are a ton of options when it comes to cnc machines so you'll have to narrow your criteria down somehow by finding answers to questions like: What is my purchase budget? What do I want to make? How much space do I have?

Budget and space may be the biggest issues. The little Piranha XL for example can cut a 12" x 24" area and has footprint of about 20" x 30". It comes fully assembled and can easily be put away somewhere when not in use. It sells for around $2,500. After that, things begin to get much bigger, heavier, more expensive and will require a dedicated space and table. My Shark HD4 cuts can cut 24" x 24" and weighs in around 300 lbs., requires a little assembly, and with the support table I built takes up a 36" x 45" footprint and is in the $4,000 price range. Others here on the forum have experience with and are very satisfied with other brands and sizes. I'm sure you'll be hearing their suggestions.
