capacity of my furnace so that set the maximum size. I'm still learning
CNC so I didn't want to venture to far from what I knew on another
design. I did do some modifications though to get more work area out of
the table size. I should have a work are of 18 in. x 56 in. if I
Are planning to post pictures of your build?
