Reiyuki's design done with HDPE cutting boards...
It's fun to look at and gives you an idea of what you can do with materials that you can buy right out of your local hardware store. :-)
Really though, this is all about what innovation is: taking something and doing something with it that nobody else thought of before. "Intended Use" is completely subjective.
Yeah, my plans were closely based on that cnc machine linked above. I pretty much just added more reinforcements and recalculated for US-Standard lumber dimensions.
That milling machine still looks like a great start for those that have the tools neccesary to fabricate cutting boards. The most advanced tools at my disposal are a drill-press and jigsaw.
I don't think that the guy who built that cutting board CNC system used anything more complicated than that. :-)
