Dave ,I was looking at your lithopane and noticed your table. How does that work for you?
I need to build another table for my cnc and I'm the kind of guy that screws his work down to a 5/8 sheet of cabinet grade plywood , when it gets too bad I replace it . I bought a black wallnut stump for $25.00, sliced it on my sawmill ,gut 6 nice 5 quarter slices about 25"x 18", carved 2 of the boards  Last supper by DA Vince. Any way I did not want to drill and screw the boards down , What you have would work perfect for what I want to do . Could you tell me what you used for track ,and does it work well with wood dust , or do you have to take a lot of time keeping it clean.

Hi, John,

I used the 8020, 1010 series, specifically the 1050 single slot extrusions on my table as can be found here from 8020 on ebay.

http://www.ebay.com/itm/8020-T-Slot-Aluminum-Extrusion-10-S-1050-x-48-N-/370227288701?pt=LH_DefaultDomain_0&hash=item5633441a7d

I then used HDPE as the sacrificial board between them and love it. The bolts for the clamps are regular 1/4-20" carriage bolts with flats ground down just a little bit on each side and they slip right in the T track without rotating when clamping down a part.

I also have different sub-sacrificial boards that I use when I need to cut through the material. Much cheaper and "modular" this way, at least for the way I do things, but obviously everyone has their own way of doing things.

You can see a bit more on how installed it here:

Hope that helps,
Dave

Thanks Dave,
I like the way you do things ,Ive gut a lot to learn.
My cutting area is 48x18 I need to learn how to stop, move my work piece over, and continue with with a larger carving , any ideas on were I can go to figure out how to do this? I have an 18' 6x8 beam to do with oak leaves and A coat of Arms in the center.
As soon as I figure out how to post pictures ,I will ,of my work and my machine.

Hi, John,

To do longer jobs than a table can handle, I make a series of dowel pin holes down both sides of the job, that match a series of dowel pins in the spoilboard. That way you can break up the job in smaller jobs. Set your piece up on the first set of pins, then run the first program. Next, slide the job down onto the next set of pins and run the second program, etc.

Now obviously this is easier with some CAD/CAM programs as opposed to others (I use Vectrics VCarve Pro), but once you get the idea of how to do it, it becomes easier to implement as well.

Hope that helps,
Dave

Looks like you're moving right along.

Great software, Vectric is, I'm looking forward to the upgrade coming soon.
