CNC Projects

Welcome to Laguna CNC Projects.  Laguna created these fun DIY projects to show you that CNC is not just business.  You can create and have fun with your CNC machine between the times you are making money with it.  Here you will find all the instructions and files you need to re-create these CNC projects.

Countless adults reminisce about their favorite “old-school” video games and let’s be honest, who wouldn’t want to replay Metal Slug or Space Invaders with a classic arcade cabinet?
