About

My goal is to raise money to purchase a Shapeoko 2 CNC router which I will use to help make wood crafts and furniture. This is the next step in my dream of becoming a woodworker. I currently have a small shop in my garage where I make small wooden crafts and furniture in my spare time. I am trying to prepare myself for when I will transition from the Army in the next few years. Getting this project kickstarted will help me take that next step and make my dream of transitioning from Soldier to woodworker come to reality! This CNC machine will allow me to carve small details and designs into my wood projects. Please join me as I make this journey in life and hopefully in the future into a new career!

The Shapeoko2 is a CNC Router offered by Inventables as a kit that must be assembled. Most CNC machines start at over 3k but this option will get me started at under 1K.

Risks and challenges

The challenges that will I most likely face in this journey is working around my schedule as a Soldier. The other challenge will be assembling and setting up the Shapeoko 2 once we meet my goal. I plan on taking every opportunity I have to get in my shop and work towards making this a success!
