We have a full size, ShopBot CNC machine, with a 8 feet by 4 feet working area, and the ability to cut solid wood, plywood, plastics, and foam. People have used this for everything from 2.5D creatures, 3D carves, and numerous circular cuts!
We have a cabinet/table saw with a cast iron top, this allows you to make repeatable quick cuts, using the fences or a mitre gauge. This is possibly the most versatile tool in the shop, with a little practice.
The band saw has multiple uses, it allows you to make curves cuts, as well as cuts in very deep materials. Using the rails you can make straight cuts. Tricky to get the hang of, but an indispensible tool to have on hand!
Our router table consists of a mounted 27,000 RPM router which benefits from being attached to the table saw to allow for dual use of the fence for straight routing, and also has a library of bits to use with it.
