The CNC Cookbook: An Introduction to the Creation and Operation of Computer Controlled Mills, Router Tables, Lathes, and More

Amazon.com

This is a really good introduction to CNC. It's well written and understandable. It will help you understand some of the vocabulary and gives a good introduction to CNC.

Build logs are the open source equivalent of the research notebook. You basically document the progress of a project, but it can be so much more. You can collaborate with others, get feedback, have people review your work. Often feedback can save you from mistakes already made by others.

The site and forum are run by Barton Dring, who we can thank for MakerSlide.
