What is a CNC Router?

In simple terms a CNC router is a mechanism that is controlled by a computer to move a wood cutting router in three dimensions. It can cut wood or plastic but usually metal cutting is reserved for a heavier built machine like a CNC mill.

CNC routers take many forms, here is a link to one manufacturer, but many people choose to build their own. http://www.k2cnc.com/CNC_Router_CNC_Machines_All_Quotes_Router.asp

Here are some videos of CNC cutting, from a basic home built one to a fancy dancy commercial machine. There are tons of other videos on youtube.
