Hello! First post!
A few months ago, my work bought a Shapeoko Pro XXL to use for prototyping. I’ve been the lead carpenter in the shop at various capacities for about six years, but never really considered the practicality of owning a bench top CNC.
Figured I should make a proper enclosure since I’ve had it running nearly every day since assembly!
I used 8020 extrusions for the framing with 3/4 birch for cabinetry and workstation trays. 1/4 acrylic was used for the windows and I sealed it up with rubber gaskets. The sound isolation is surprisingly good. When used with a Festool CT26, you can easily have a conversation next to it.
