So, I let it slip in a video a while back that I was getting a new CNC router. It’s true, that happened.
So now the next thing (which we all should have expected), has also happened. I’ve started using the CNC router to complete RV mod projects. This one completes the mods required to create a private washroom for Mel.
It’s a pretty simple mod, really, and that makes throwing a CNC router at it the very definition of overkill. I was just looking for something to get my feet wet with my CNC router, and this seemed like a good excuse. Plus, by including one more project in the list of “things I’ve done with the CNC”, I’ll be able to amortize the cost of it over more projects. So it will look slightly less ridiculous. (Because using a spendy tool like this to make a shelf for your cat to poop on DOES seem a bit ridiculous.)
Besides that, this video is a pretty good representation of what it’s like to hang out in the shop while I’m working on an RV mod. Except for the swearing. I edited out the swearing.
The router I have is the I2R8, from Imagination to Reality CNC. I do hope to get faster with the tool so that I can use it for more RV mod projects going forward. Now that I’ve started tearing apart our EKKO, it’s giving me some ideas of ways to use it. If you have questions about anything else you see in the video, sound off below in the comments, and I’ll fill you in.
Well, that’s about it. Enjoy!
PS – if you were wondering… Mel seems to really care less about all the mods I’ve made for him. Yeah, he uses them, but he actually seems more grateful for cans of wet cat food…
