CNC Projects to Make and Sell

1. Wooden Lettering Signage for Kids Rooms

Why not take advantage of your CNC and make some awesome wall decor for your kids, grandkids, friends, etc. This project is extremely easy to design, program and route, and will create a beautiful custom finish to a child’s bed room. You can play around with different fonts, create 3D or 2D lettering, and fully customize the project for each bedroom. For inspiration, check out companies like Pottery Barn, CraftCuts, &  Wayfair to create your own stacked, custom, wood wall design. This is also a great gift idea for baby showers, birthdays, house warming, holidays, and more.

2. Napkin Holders

One of our techs recently designed and routed this awesome paper towel holder using one of our tabletop CNC routers. This project was quick, easy and serves a purpose here at our headquarters! You do not need a large format CNC router for this project, and it is a great way to use your router to make basic household items

3. Custom Pet Beds

One of our customers, Matt from Completely Custom Woods, recently designed and routed these awesome pup beds for a customer of his. This project is another great way to utilize your CNC machine for purposes other than the reason you may have purchased your CNC in the first place. You can have fun with this project and customize the style, name, design, and size for your fur babies.

4. Furniture: Custom Drawers, Beds, Vanities, Tables, Chairs, Desks, Cabinets & More

When it comes to furniture design and creativity using a CNC router, the possibilities are truly endless. Owning a CNC router comes with an endless supply of advantages, but creative custom furniture pieces is definitely one of them. Instead of investing in pieces from places like Raymour & Flanigan, HomeGoods, Home Depot, Wayfair, Overstock, Ikea, Pottery Barn & West Elm, why not create the piece of your dreams yourself? This is a great DIY project to bring your furniture vision to life. Pair your CNC with a good design and some hardwood, and you’ll have yourself a one-of-a-kind custom furnishing in little to no time, at just half the cost. For easy programming, purchase an already vectorized file from places like Etsy for an even quicker DIY project.

5. Wood Instruments

Guitars, for example, are a popular application for customers looking to invest in our CNC equipment. We have many customers who have purchased our machinery with the intent of custom luthiery, If you haven’t already purchased a CNC machine with the intent to build custom guitars or other wooden instruments, why not take advantage of your CNC router for custom lutheiry.
