 Not cnc but it dadoed Adirondack chair back slats, before the machine they had been done on a jig on a table saw at the company I worked for and varied between production runs depending on the person setting up, that was an issue for interchangeability and replacement parts for chair repairs.

 So I made this machine, its main control was a 5 port pilot valve with air limit switches the hopper was fed by the person shaping the parts and stacked by the machine on the way out. The parts were referenced from the bottom so each size came out the same, 3 routers mounted in the table cut the dadoes.

 Looks like a lot of machine for one task but we made thousands of teak Adirondack chairs
