    Hopefully this qualifies for entry into the parts contest - I could use some higher power drivers for this machine than the DRV8825's I was using!

    If there is a way to fabricate extruded wood rails you'd really have something there.

    Thanks. I don't think it is worth using plywood - given the availability of OpenBuilder products now, I think that is much more useable. I clicked together a CNC project in a few evenings and afternoons, see my other build for details.

    Oddly enough though, in my area the local openbeam distributor just raised their prices by 25%. Hopefully it doesn't get any more expensive. Crazy!
