My CNC build.  I used a Weeke BP15 that I purchased at an auction.  Did some major modifications so I can cut 5'x12'.  I needed to replace servo motors and drives.  I purchased those and a new controller from MachMotion.  Re-used 10hp router spindle with quick change spindles.  I'll get some finished pics tomorrow.

Looks to be a major CNC build and impressive.
 
I gather the yellow bridge frame travels in the x direction along a roller system under the green bridge (for lack of better terminology :) )

What products are you planning to turn out?

beenthere yes that is correct.  Tomorrow ill post some more pics and a short clip if I can figure it out.  We produced 150 bunk beds for a youth camp in North Carolina.  We did true mortise and tenon connections. All mortises and melamine sheets were done on cnc.  Also we do some custom radius and elliptical moldings.  Some reclaimed heart pine chairs and benches.

GA, nice work man, pretty darn cool.  It had to be a fun project,  not to mention it shows potential for profit,  david
only have a few chain saws I'm not suppose to use, but will at times, one dog Dolly, pretty good dog, just not sure what for yet,  working on getting the gardening back in order, and kinda thinking on maybe a small bbq bizz,  thinking about it,
