Can someone point me in the right direction on how to make a CNC controller? IM A NOOB?

I want to make this CNC machine (, but im not sure how to build a controller. I have a Macbook, and i havent seen any software fora cnc controller, and i cant write it. I need a schematic for one, an Arduino one would be the best thing ever though. I saw something about an Arduino that read a .txt file off an SD card and was a CNC controller. Any help from the comunity would be great!
