What's the biggest thing you've made - on your Shapeoko?

I was thinking, I want a bigger Shapeoko but at the same time I wanted to see what the biggest thing people have made on theirs.

Mines a bit of a cheat, but I made a 2m sign on my S3 :slight_smile:

Yes thats glitter, and yep it lights up using solar powered fairy lights.

I built this on my Shapeoko XXL. Every part of it cut out on the CNC. It is 4 feet by 8 feet in total size.


Stacy -

Did you create an “XXL sized” tool path , then manually index the work-piece on the machine? I’m on the hunt for technique, workflow, and software strategies for large scale part fabrication.

My Power Hack Saw.

28 inches long, weighs 68 pounds, and chooches everyday. 40% Aluminum, 60% Steel, and nearly every part was machined on my Shapeoko 3. (Edit: And it neatly hangs on the wall when it is not in use)


Very nice. Also, extra points for correct use of AvE’s “chooch”.

Yes I used VCarve Pro and tiling to cut the top an sides. Simply set up a 2 foot by 2 foot model and aligned the 2 foot mark to the front of the spoilboard and cut the next two foot section. Rinse and repeat. No index pins, no anything except a measurement mark every two feet.

I love that table I’m looking to build a workbench myself but don’t have the space to accommodate that

That’s a really beautiful little machine Rich! I may have to take a closer look in a couple weeks when my new mini-lathe arrives, gonna need something like that to cut down stock so I can turn it. Between my SO3 and the lathe itself I should be able to make most everything except the motor. Hopefully whatever I come up with is half as nice as yours, nice work!


You can certainly make it smaller. I saw one online that was 2X6 feet.

Thank you for that very kind compliment. This Power Hack Saw is a LOT easier to make if you have a Lathe! Good luck, and keep me informed. PS I am STILL on the same Starrett Hack Saw blade (and I’ve cut a LOT of steel).

The outline of Ohio is 27" by 24" made on a Shapeoko 3 XXL.


I made this little submarine for my son costume carnaval!



Is this water worthy?
I’d want one too!

Was that the costume? I mean did your son wear it and walk around? You son must be very strong?

Awesome project!


little wheels are inside the bronze tank!


I love this - by far one of the coolest things I’ve seen in a while


No “Bronze Tank” but it is the biggest I’ve made with my XL.


Sweet! I love it when folks make furniture.
An outstanding design and machine utilization.
