Thanks! Share it with your friends!


The Shaper Origin is a portable CNC handheld router that can be taken to your work unlike any other CNC. I put the Shaper Origin to test by routing and inlaying a diamond pattern into a finished desk. Something that would be nearly impossible with an ordinary CNC.

Why does this guy sound like he's explaining something to a toddler 🤔 i lasted watching this about the amount of time it took me to type this…

Michel Audette says:

Could this replace a Domino jointer?

j rendt says:

I wonder if it will work on a vertical surface?

Stuie444 says:

Inside line cut is so that you can switch to a smaller/more precise bit to cut sharp corners and remove the radius of the bit (like at the tips of the diamonds). Also helps prevent chip-out. On the first pass you you can use a larger bit to hog out most of the material.

Jeremy McClanahan says:

Update video? Do you still love it

Ken Krause says:

Awesome video! You nailed it! I watched other “origin” videos, none explained it as well as you did! I really appreciate it!

Oki Spider says:

Barry Wallace says:

Do you still like your Shaper Origin?

Awesome mate! Thanks!

Matt Shortridge says:

Big veterinarian syringes used for cattle are cheap and handy for placing epoxy like that.

Mark Baker says:

I'm looking forward to returning to Finewoodworking at the level that my former clients and skill set established 25 years ago, just from my own home shop and disabled.
As days progress, time will tell. But it seems my disabilities will not be an issue.

UC University says:

you haven't used it since this video.

Sean Ditch says:

A Syringe for the epoxy resin works extremely well.
And you can get them in different sizes. 👍👍👍

Hey Jeeery says:

I'm sold, great video

Richard Rousseau says:

Just like a lot of machines in my shop…. 'I'm not going to, but I could!!' 🤣 Cool machine!

Oliver Eyre says:

It looks great but I want to get my chisels out and square those rounded corners! I wonder how square you can get them by using a smaller bit?

Anthony Grey says:

Hey David, any chance you could do a short update video with a comparison between this Shaper and the Stepcraft. I am sat on the fence between the two and would love some unbiased information.
Cheers matey,
