New table for CNC

I built a new table for my CNC machine. It’s 2×4 construction with a surface area of 49 inches by 60 inches (4ft x 5 ft). I found some plans on the interwwebs from this guy and made only very slight modifications to raise the table height by 1.5 inches so it aligns with my extension table on my saw.

Table frame

I put casters under the feet so I can roll the table away from the wall when necessary for cleaning or whatever. Each caster is rated for 88 lbs of weight, so the 4 of them should handle the job nicely.

Table with top

The top is made from a single piece of 3/4 inch baltic birch plywood that I bought some time ago without any particular purpose in mind. I guess I found a good use for it. The sheet was 5 ft square when purchased so I cut a strip 11 inches off one side and it fit perfectly on my new table frame.

Here is the new table with my CNC machine and laptop on it. Hmmm. I think this table could hold a bigger CNC machine… (to be continued).
