    Hi Sean,

    Welcome to CNCUK...

    Do's and dont's... Do make it big and ugly (you can use it to help tidy it up later), don't use unsupported rails if you want to do any real cutting...

    What sort of projects do you have in mind?
    (by the way i'm not really qualified to help - i've not finished building mine yet)
