the Actual Working Area of 20” x 30” is a bit small.
something a trophy shop would use to engrave award plaques, etc.
BUT ~ don’t be fooled with the size. with experience, you could actually
build a carved sign that is 14 feet long and 6 feet tall with that machine !!!
for an entry level machine, doing the projects you mentioned, that size will be fine.
there are many used ones on the market where the owners gained their experience
and upgraded to larger table models. IMO, buying a used one that already has the
software, tools and cutting bits, would be the best avenue to pursue.
plus – maybe the seller would lend assistance when you need it if he is close by.
maybe the more experienced CNC owners can help with your decision making.
