Introducing Plyco's Plywood CNC Cutting Service

Plyco’s CNC cutting service will revolutionise the way you cut your plywood. Gone are the days of simple straight cuts being your only option — with our cutting-edge CNC router and our expert team at your disposal, you can unlock a new world of possibilities.

As many of you would be aware, Plyco offers a comprehensive cut-to-size service. Customers often take advantage of this in several ways, such as cutting a board in half to make it easier to transport, or getting a bulk order cut to a specific size to save the time and hassle of doing it yourself. What you might not know is that Plyco’s cutting team is capable of so much more thanks to our CNC machine!

What Are The Benefits of CNC Plywood Cutting?

With the addition of a state-of-the-art CNC router to the stable of machinery in Plyco’s manufacturing plant, a whole new world of possibilities was opened up. This not-so-simple machine allows us to provide incredible services that stretch far beyond simple straight-line cuts to make a plywood sheet easier to carry. As part of our plywood CNC cutting service, we can create all sorts of custom panel shapes, allowing you to design complex bench tops or slot together furniture and shelving.

Discover what's possible with Plyco's CNC service via our CNC specifications guide.

How Does Plyco’s Plywood CNC Cutting Service Work?

There are a number of ways you can kickstart your journey to becoming a CNC champion. If you’re knowledgeable in this area you’re welcome to send through your own DXF file which we can plug straight into our machine and get to cutting. However, we realise this isn’t feasible for many customers and can actually be a significant hurdle to engaging with CNC cutting.

If you’re just wetting your feet in the world of plywood CNC cutting we’ve got a solution for you. Spearheaded by James, our cutting expert, we offer a programming service that is able to convert even the simplest hand drawings into a masterpiece. We will work alongside you to iron out all the details of your design and make sure that, when it comes time to cut you can feel safe and assured that your plywood will be exactly as you imagined it.


You don’t need to worry about your cutting project being too small to take advantage of our CNC cutting either. This service is charged hourly, which means whether you’re submitting the most intricate design we have ever seen or something small and simple, we can still accommodate you.

Once you submit your file or design, our plywood CNC cutting gurus will get to work making sure everything is in order, before sending you back a quote for the pricing of your cuts. If you’re happy to go ahead the fun part starts and we get to cutting!

The bed size of our CNC machine is 3000 x 1500mm, which allows us to fit every size of plywood board we stock. Please note that each sheet is cut with a +/-0.250mm tolerance of your final shape.

How Can I Benefit From Plyco’s CNC Cutting?

Taking advantage of our incredible CNC cutting service unlocks a whole new range of possibilities for your plywood projects. You might be aware of the curved cuts a CNC router offers, but our talented cutting team can also take advantage of the machine to drill a variety of through holes with varied depths, 45-degree chamfering, grooving, and text engraving. One of our favourite uses for the CNC machine is dog-boned slots. These unique slots allow for the creation of easy-to-assemble furniture, making installation and setup easier than even IKEA flatpack furniture!
