Hobbyist CNC Machining/ShapeOko

The ShapeOko is a fully open source (open hardware) 3 axis CNC machine that anyone can build for about $300 (or a bit more, especially if one upgrades the machine).

Originally featured on a Kickstarter campaign, on July 26, 2011, 125 backers pledged $11,078 toward Project ShapeOko, far exceeding the funding goal of $1,500.

More details, including full assembly instructions are at the project web site which includes a forum and wiki, http://www.shapeoko.com. There's also a full bill of materials at kitbom.
