The Handibot can be a great tool to bring on a jobsite and put on material. I've used it to mill interesting things on larger boards that would either be impossible to get onto a larger machine or just impossible.
I've started working on some picture frames which require things to be really precise. To that end I've created this table. The idea here is to have a table that allows for clamping and jigging a variety of different size pieces. I experimented with all kinds of metal hardware. Some of it worked, and some didn't. I don't like the idea of metal being in the cutting area if I can help it either.
Charlie hacked the Maker Table into a light tracing table. Pretty cool! Want to hack your own version of the bench? If you do we'll make it and show it off at Maker Faire Bay Area. We'll also make the milling files available for anyone too.
Help us hack our maker bench! We're designing an open sourced CNC made bench for students, teachers, hackers and makers. We'll take your ideas, build a real CNC made table, and then open source the entire project so that anyone can build one of these tables.
