Shaping, Grooving and Drilling


CNC Cutting Service

Drilling, shaping, grooving and much more.

We are one of the few companies in the London area that provide bespoke CNC services staffed with experienced design team and CNC operators. Our CNC machine can cut unusually shaped components that otherwise would prove near to impossible to produce. A fully computerised interface allows us to create single and multiple parts with accuracy and precision each time.

We can also drill holes and cut grooves of any size to a panel's face. Using our machining selection interface, you can quickly and conveniently specify the location for drilling hinge holes, library shelf holes and other machining operations.

CNC routing is used by many of our customers to create grooves in their panels to either help with joinery or as a neat solution for placing LED strip lighting. You can send us a drawing outlining your requirements when you have a more complex job to do. We work with standard CAD files such as .dwg, .dfx and .dxf, but can also take on a simple hand sketch and turn it into a CAD-based diagram that our machine can read.

Our lead times for CNC projects are between 5 – 6 working days.

Check out the Cworkshop CNC machine working on various projects. Our team of CNC designers begin by translating your designs and requirements using specialist software, simulating the cutting process and then transmitting it to the CNC machine. The CNC operators load up the right panels to be worked on, select the project needed and oversee the CNC machine to ensure precise cutting. After the project is complete, the CNC operators remove the cut panels and tidy the area, ready for the next project. 

The Highlights

Maximum efficiency with minimalist styling.

Handle Forming

The CNC machine can add small details to your panels, which can add not only flair but also convenience. See below some of our customer's favourite handles made with our CNC service—but if you have and handle design in mind, get in touch to see how we can help.

Precise and time-saving.

Hole Drilling

For your convenience, we can drill hinge and shelf holes into your panels, which can be a mundane task that requires precision and attention to detail. As an example, our CNC machine can drill 100 shelf holes in 15 minutes, chip-free. You can easily specify hole size, depth and locations using our easy-to-use online tool.

Panel Grooving

The CNC machine is capable of cutting recesses into MDF, plywood or MFC in varying lengths, depths and widths, for whatever your needs may be. Your grooves can be cut using different shaped routing bits to add a profile to your recess, such as a V-groove or a square channel. Here are a few ways you can use our CNC service to get your grooves and recesses cut.
