large CNC converted to Ethernet

I did so much on the TravelCNC and the new Makibox 3D printer that all work on my large (very non-mobile) CNC got delayed quite a bit.
This weekend I finally got around to convert it from shielded USB cables to Ethernet.
The board was already capable of this but obviously I needed a way to supply 5V power when the USB cable was no longer used.

As a test-project I finished a very custom too-shelf for my tiny workshop out of scrap wood.
I tried to do deeper cuts into wood to use more of the actual cutting length of my thick 10 flute cutter and not wear out the tip as much but everything below Z-1.5mm was problematic.
