Wooden Letters: A Starting Project

            New hobbyists will often ask themselves where they should start when they get their CNC router up and running(Simple project). A basic project you can do on a CNC router is some form of 2D cutting. Even the smallest and simplest CNC router is fully capable of 2D cutting so this is a good starting off point regardless of what kind of machine you are using. With a 2D project of any kind you will essentially be setting up your machine to “draw” on your material (most commonly wood for this type of project). Your CNC router will cut some sort of image into the wood and it will take the desired shape. The final product will look similar to something that has been drawn on paper or created for display on a computer screen. As simple as this project is it is a good way to generate income. Wooden decorations tend to be very nice and provide a homely feeling making them a commonly purchased decoration. By engaging in this project you can not only gain experience at using your CNC router to better prepare you for more complex future projects but you can also bring in some money so that your machine will start paying itself off.
