Hi, in the following two videos I documented the build of my DIY CNC machine. It's a 3-axis router with a wooden frame. Part 1 of the video shows the build of the frame while part 2 shows in detail how all the electronic components are connected. Also in part 2, there's a quick overview of the software and firmware that I use to run the machine as well as the first machining test run.

In the two videos, I mainly focused on the build of the machine. For more details on how to deal with the software and firmware there are many good tutorials available online. I hope that these videos can support you in your own build.

DIY CNC Machine
In this project, I show you how I built my DIY CNC machine. All moving parts of the DIY CNC router are running on ball bearings while the structural parts are made with natural materials, namely birch plywood and solid beech wood.

Reason for this BuildThe challenge of making a wooden frame that is stiff enough to not only allow to machine wood but also aluminum.
