5 Days Ago #1
I'm looking to get into some small scale furniture making as a side business/hobby. My starting point is furniture based on the open templates at OpenDesk https://www.opendesk.cc/ then into my own stuff.
I'm looking for advice on what would be an ideal starting point for a machine capable of doing this. I think I need a 4'x8' capable machine with enough power to cleanly cut 18mm baltic birth ply in a single pass, with or without melamine surfaces on single or both sides. I'm not too worried about new, would rather start with something second hand and see how I get on.
Is this possible for around £5k? I've seen a second hand AXYZ 4008 for about that but don't know its history or state.
Any opinions appreciated. Thanks
