what you can use cnc router to do

Maybe you’ve been to a big woodworking exhibition before and were impressed of that, industrial CNC (Computer Numeric Control) router machines. Full sheets of plywood slide in one end and cabinet parts — complete with joinery cuts, holes for shelving pins, pilots for mounting screws and even decorative grooving i.e.

Actually, what I can use cnc router to do is question from person who is not familiar with cnc router very well, or with entry level. So here is a brief introduction about what cnc router can do as hobby mainly.

CNC Makes Cutting Patterns Easy

First you might draw the contour using a CAD program to draw the contour. Then could cut patterns directly, no need sanding, sawing again. And if you want to make the same shape again in the future, it is in your PC.

Use the Built-in Precision

CNC router can do the exact size work you want it to do, like drilling and milling. The hole will be at the exact position you set and milling surface precision also is at higher level.

Part Making

If you own a woodworking shop, there must lots of part making projects. Parts making is more accurate by cnc , not mention the pattern and shaping on the parts. Let the cnc router help you work on the easiest part and you may spend on your time for more creative idea on woodworking parts making.


By cnc, you could add cove cuts, bevels, grooves or other precision work on the woodworking projects easily and precisely.


Joinery is a part of woodworking that involves joining together pieces of wood, to produce more complex items. Some wood joints employ fasteners, bindings, or adhesives, while others use only wood elements. The characteristics of wooden joints – strength, flexibility, toughness,appearance, etc. – derive from the properties of the joining materials and from how they are used in the joints. (wikipedia)

CNC joinery differs from traditional woodworking joints. Round interior corners can cause awkward or even unattractive joints. But the ability to replicate precise actions makes certain joints a breeze.


Jigs and Fixture Making

This is very helpful for your daily work. CNC for making jig and fixture parts. It’s particularly handy if you need dedicated clamp cauls for an unusually shaped project or other task-specific tools.

Cutting Materials Other Than Wood

Besides of wood, cnc router can do a lot of material, like plastic, foam, PVC, acrylic, glass, stone, jade, marble. And if with special cutting tool, like tangential cutter, you also could cut carpet, integrated paper, cupboard, film etc.
