My quest for CNC training

Ever since joining makehaven I've become obsesseed with additive manufacturing and 5 axis CNC. While using the RepRap and using all of the software associated with it has been a blast, the chance to get access to a 5 axis machine is really limited. So I began my quest for CNC.

Being from Stratford aka Helicopter City USA,  I figured that there would be abundant training in the area. FAR FROM IT! In fact, CNC is in such demand, that there are over 100+ jobs in the immediate area posted on Indeed.com's site.  So I've decided to take the following 2 paths to get my training:

Workbenches for the basement

On Sunday, the 27th, @ 10am we will be constructing some benches for the donated tools we have accumulated as well as for work surfaces.  Tomorrow night I will be measuring and plotting the basement space to try to come up with a reasonable layout.  Any input is welcome in this regard. 

 

On Sunday we will start by picking up the materials at HD and will work until it ain't fun no more. 

 

This will be a great opportunity for those members who would like to brush up on basic wood working skills to come down and learn while you help out.
