CNC Shops around the World

  • It can be hard finding decent talent for CNC cutting.  We would like to invite all builders who get their parts CNC cut locally to share the contact information and the quality of the overall experience.  Price would also be of interest. 

  • For those in the Puget Sound area, I've had great experiences with Edensaw Woods. They stock marine plywood (although they are currently out of 4mm Okoume like everyone else) and seem to price their CNC jobs fairly. CNC work is done out of Port Townsend, but you can pick up in Tacoma.

  • In Port Townsend, Washington, there are two options - Turnpoint Design and Edensaw Woods.  Brandon, the owner of Turnpoint is really knowledgeable and does the cutting for the RowCruiser kits (which are sold through Duckworks, also in PT). From what I've hears, Edensaw is good too. So for PT peeps there are choices.

  • Here in Victoria, BC there are a couple of options.  There is Maximum Prototyping and Westwind Hardwoods.  Maximum Protoyping is the company that cuts all our kits, and Jordan, the owner, is a whizz.  I would highly recommend them, though they can be busy at times.  Westwind also sells okoume plywood, so it could work well as a one-stop shop.

  • Hey Guys!  I live in the Toronto area, and I've used Noah's a couple of times for my CNC cutting.  Prices aren't bad, and they know what they are doing.  They have a 5'x10' table, so can fit big pieces of wood on it.  More info can be found here:

  • Here in the UK I had my boat parts cut at Fyne boat kits.  They are based out of Cumbria, so a bit of a trek for those of us in the south.  They do great work, though, and really understand kit boats.  Their contact info is


  • I found Wilson Custom cabinetry in Billings Montana and they did an excellent job of cutting my Amas for the sail conversion row cruiser. They have a beautiful CNC machine that cuts from full sheets and were able to use the cut program supplied with the plans. It cost around 200 US, (3 years ago)  which was well worth the time and effort, and the Amas went together perfectly after some gentle persuasion. I found the main hull was easier to form than the tighter curves on the amas, but I got them together eventually. Building the amas is like building 2 additional boats.

    I sourced the Okume from Chesapeake Light craft back east.
