I am not sure, if I will be able to document every step, as I know myself, that I am way to deep into building, to think about making photos, as soon as I start, but I will try…
I am going with 1000x800mm Rails but an as short as possible Z-Axis, as I will only be milling.
First step was the table. I used Fusion 360 to draw it (3 times). That way I had the sizes for all pieces written down and I couldn’t mess it up by just calculating.
It is constructed out of 22mm MDF Material and 45x70mm Wood for the Frame and the legs.
As I have not made that many pictures, I add some CAD renderings (with wrong wood textures)…
- I build the frame, that holds everything. The pieces are glued together and are also hold by two 6x100mm screws each join
- I connected the base plate to the frame. This was done with a alot of 4.5x45mm screws.
- Next step was to add the two side plates for the second level of MDF.
- In the middle is the changeable plate, where the working area is.
- I added the legs to it.
