Kind of interesting.
What is your specific skill? I mean mechanical or electrical.
If you to start you project, you have to know them.
Actually I finished the electrical control part and still waiting for a body of CNC to be done. I was planning to build a CNC frame from wood too but I can't.
Anyway, I can help you on electrical part but I will need your help on making frame from wood.
Call me Max, Catch you later.
