Portable wooden CNC machine

Nick Santillan wrote in to share his collapsible wooden 3-axis CNC machine. He decided to make the machine portable because he didn’t have a permanent space to use, and needed to be able to move it easily. Though he certainly isn’t the first to design such a machine, I do really like the fact that it has an open working surface, which allows it to work on pieces that wouldn’t fit in a standard machine. It seems like it could be fun to stick down on top of tables or other furniture and engrave patterns directly into them.

    This seems like an ideal way to add inlaid details to an existing hardwood floor.
