I have spent the last few days making some videos on basic CNC cutting on a router. They are full fledged tutorials I don't go into every little detail because that would be insanity but its more detailed that any other video I've seen.
These videos are all available in 1080HD if your connection and computer can handle it.
Video #1 - This video is for someone who knows very little about CNC or how the machines operate. Its loaded with lots of good information and lots of sharp photos. If you know a lot about CNC skip to videos 2 & 3.

Video #2 - In this video I show how to take an idea an do every step along the way to turn it into G-Code (instructions for the cnc).

Video #3 - In this video I take everything from video 1 and 2 and put it into action. I create a very nice little cupholder that says youtube 2011 in giant letters. At the time of posting the video is still processing but will be available by midnight in hd.
