Site Kickoff

Welcome!

With the abundance of questions I’ve been receiving through Youtube and Instagram I’ve decided to launch a site to share in more detail my past, current, and future CNC (or other related) builds. Check back often as the plan is to start with the knowledge base to answer common questions I’ve seen over the past year or so and post some additional info about all the builds shared to date. If in the future, the site may morph into a storefront based on how things progress but the knowledge-base and table details will always be available.
