Yes Brett, I made a vacuum table out of plywood. I don't use it anymore as the shop vac I used to pull the vacuum added so much noise in the room I needed earplugs. Also you must cover up the unused holes and cut a rubber sealing gasket for the bottom. With foam its easier to use duct tape. Plywood I use contact cement. I found running the spindle speed as slow as possible helped the melting issue here. I have also spayed water on the foam. I think it helps too. I get my bits from this guy, an Ebayer that ships from the US. I got a copy of ARTCAM... And have no clue how to run it. Looks like a steep learning curve..
