Bill Griggs-

 

Hi, I’m BiIl Griggs and I am a Father, Writer, Maker, Tinkerer, Innovator, Jazz Hack, Woodworker, Volunteer and Entrepreneur. I have been building CNC machines since 1999 and I built my first CNC Router table in 2005.

I wanted a CNC Router table to make it easier for me to make model airplane kits and custom parts. Commercial CNC machine were very expensive (and still are) and were out of my reach. So I decided I would try to build my own from plans on the internet.

My first efforts were made from MDF, Gas pipe and roller skate bearings. I soon realized that my MDF machine was finicky and too small. So I began design work on a larger machine. About the time I got the drawings finished, someone else came out with plans for an even larger machine. I dropped my design and began building this tested design instead. I completed construction of my second machine in 2009. It was called a Joescnc 4×4 Hybrid.

In 2010 I decided to create a totally new style of Z axis for my machine. I called this the Warp Drive Project. As a result of the success of the Warp Drive Project, I came to the attention of Morrisville State College. I became an assistant and then an Adjunct Instructor and taught the students how to design and build CNC Router tables.

While all this was going on I began blogging about my obsession with CNC machines and creating Youtube videos. I wanted to share what I was learning with anyone who was interested.

I am convinced that CNC Routers can restart the Cottage Industry by giving people the chance to create custom designed art and products which they can market globally. I want to share that opportunity with you.
