I'm making prototype furniture and in my search for a big and durable cnc mill, I decided on an Ox model with minor reinforcements made to ensure strength and stability while cutting harder wood.
And size does matter guys....but being realistic about it, considering i haven't got a lot of work and living space in my apartment to start with, i landed on a size 1500x1000mm in footprint, now making it impossible for us to have seated dinner guests in the future.
Originally, i ordered the machine from a local cnc pusher as pre assembled machine, but unfortunately it was very poorly made and 20% of the pieces were missing - a bad deal and a bad start on my computerized milling dream. BUT, i now have the unexpected pleasure of being a part of this wonderful machine making family.
I ordered the rest of the parts on OpenBuildsPartStore and at my two new local cnc dealers in Denmark Makerssupplies and CNCHobby
I have assembled the machine, somewhat. The recipe is pretty standard to the kits and bundle packs which can be found in above mentioned dealerships.
It has be a learning by doing experience making this machine, been watching a lot of youtube videos, to do things right.
The project is at the moment at a standstill due to ignorance towards the hole computerized numerically controlled part
Im collecting knowledge and will be back with more building info
This is my OX. There are many like it, but this one is mine. My OX is my best friend. It is my life. I must master it as I must master my life.....

Reason for this BuildI'm building this cnc-mill for mainly wood cutting and engraving. Once it's done i'm planning on making prototype furniture.
Also i'm building this as a learning experience
