    It's hard to tell what you've got going on so far, but it doesn't look like you've got enough slides yet. That one big rod on the Y axis is a start, but you need a couple of them if the router isn't going to just flap around loose. I didn't see any slides on the Z axis, and the gantry sides don't seem to be present at all (or are those rails for a moving table?). Make space for your screws to run in and places for your motors to mount - I don't see any of that yet. Once you've got the basic frame of the machine built, and have figured out the sorts and sizes of the materials you plan to cut, then you'll have a better idea of which screws, motors, and drives you'll need to push the stages around.
