Your Complete Precision Cutting Solution

Shaper Origin Workstation on workbench

Shaper Origin is the world’s first handheld CNC router. Designed for woodworkers, Origin is an ideal choice for anyone looking to add CNC capabilities to their shop without the learning curve, footprint and cost that a traditional CNC machine entails.

Origin tracks its location as you move it across your workpiece, making hundreds of microadjustments per second and keeping your cuts clean and precise.

And adding Workstation to Origin creates a Complete Cutting System with adaptable precision and fixturing that is capable of tackling virtually any project.

“Shaper Origin has been a game changer in my shop. What was difficult or impossible before is now easy!”
-Josh Podoll, Chop Wood Co.
