Could make a somewhat tighter formation of the numbers, then add a double frame with top layer overhang used to hide the spare numbers.How about giving the transport magnet an added axis and have the moved number "danse"? Some programming could then : - rotate the travelling digit - have digit take "random" path taking number from one of four sides of a square clock, each side with 0-9 to cover all combos, even make a 24hr clock - animate digits during the minute left between the changes of time ... or add a couple of icons. Like a sun during day, moon at night. - could probably add the date ! - ...Tons of possibilities with this sweet project. Great concept.

Homemade Puff Pastry
Very nice. I always wanted to make one of those river tables. But this is a nice way of giving a go without having to do a whole table, even if just a small one. Less resin, etc involved as well. Not to mention I don't have room for a table. The walls are bare. ;))

5 Ways to Print on Wood
HDPE Blocks From Plastic Bottles
Why didn't I think of that ? ;)I have used pliers to pull the nails out of the studs, and even old barn beams. The latter often have nails so old and rusted they break, leaving a piece deep within the wood. Your trick should help get those pieces out... It would be like core mining.I'll be trying it on the next batch of upcycling pallets and such. Although some pallets can have 3 or 4 nails holding the slats at each stud/beam.Would make clusters of plugs ... giving the finished upcycled wood more character, right ?
So that's why some of those nails are hell to impossible to pull out ! this the first time I read about glue / epoxy being used to hold those nails in the pallet wood ...The only way to pull them out is with pliers. Almost like pulling teeth, but using leverage. Nails end up curved, but completely out, whether headless or not, in seconds. Unless they break too close to the surface of he wood that is .... The pain is getting the wood slats off in one piece.I'll be trying johnny3h coring trick. Slats should come off in no time. Split cores and use plyers to extract the nails as they wait sticking out of the beams/studs.Got a small stack of pallets and three old barn beams - lots rusty nails in those, waiting out back ...
Twin Cutting Boards
Bending Plywood With 3D Printer
Very interesting approach which gives me a few ideas for projects I was staying away from. I didn't want to go through the steps of having to make bulky single use molds. You have just shown me a way to make a multi-use "mold".

Great project, giving me some ideas with v-carving / routing (instead of laser) ...Always being a bit scared about the resin portion, but your project makes it look much easier than I thought thus far.
Concrete and Wood Slab Table
Great way to still do CAD drawings of 2D and 2.5D patterns and produce the parts with tools that are usually on hand.
Could always call it 244cmx122cm, 24.4dm x 12.2dm or 2.44m x 1.22m ;)All being equal to each other but slightly larger than a 4' x 8' here in North America ... measure twice in your favorite unit and scale, cut once.
I really like the self adjusting guide - simple, but effective. No fundling to offset anything from where the cut is wanted. The cut line will always be right where you need it to be and as straight as you can guide the saw.Could always make the top layer, actual saw guide, a bit thicker if need be.
Also forgot to always be aware of the power cord as you don't want to cut it.Maybe also not use electric power tools near water, wet frame from being stored outside behind the shed, or flammable items in case the blade hits one of the screws holding the frame together (before it hits the steel shoe cap of your safety shoes).Do instructables really need to spell out all warnings or do we really need those labels on the last step of ladders ?
Wooden Business Card Holder
I've been thinking about one of these for a while now. Your design is compact / transportable, apparently easy to make and more precise than what the guys at stores end up doing as they rush through the cuts.You got my votes.
Live Edge River Coffee Table | How to Build
Glowing River Desktop
I'll have to give it a try ... I am always afraid the wood would warp after a while. Years ago we had someone build us a table and the thing split and cracked like mad so I never dared give it a try myself. He used only glue, now that I think of it ...
Has the table 'moved' in any way since ? By this I mean has there been any twisting forces at play from the 2x, even once glued together to make table ?Great looking table, by the way.

Looks like a great entry point for those wanting to get into DIY CNC, especially on a budget. It won't be the fastest, sturdiest, most precise machine on block; but it will do the job as Nicengineering as shown with some of his other work...Great job and great instructable, ingenius way of using off the shelf component to make a working CNC. Even better you have tested the design and shared it with all of us. You got my vote.
Looks great and easy enough to build.What if you replaced two length of 2x4 for the slab with 2x6 or wider instead of doing mortise and tenons ? Cost would go up a bit. Could actually replace 4 to 'box' the legs in... It would add strength to overall length of table and make the legs easier to fix to the slab. Legs could be removable (screwed/bolted). Most important, there would be no messing around with gaps about any hand made tenons, etc. Less work, less tools and easier / faster to put together ?Add a few strategically placed 1/2" (?) through holes to be able to use "dogs" - allow use of removable stops and whatnots to help hold down work pieces ...Unfortunately, I just made a 2x4 frame with a sheet of OSB for top. Cost is not much less, making frame square is not ea…

Cost is not much less, making frame square is not easier, ... while strength is a lot less. Its replacement will be based on your design with above tweaks. As you say, just needs resurfacing when the top is too scared from extensive use. It should last for years !
