I have never left my own border :/ now I have yet another reason to do so. Currently biggest benefit would be to escape the billows of smoke in my backyard that are wreaking havoc on my sinuses.
@Clifford I'm on a Shapeoko XL. I looked at the Maslow years ago, but it doesn't look as "housebreak-able" as the tabletop CNC stuff.
I had a little Chinese 3018 ($249) before the Shapeoko, and I used it to make all kinds of motion control robot parts out of 6mm MDF.
I actually haven't fired it up in about 3 months. Been working on film and music stuff. I'll get back to the furniture stuff eventually. I've got a huge backlog of stuff I need to design and build.
Mostly an instance for friends and family. Nothing special.
