Postby AmritpalP » Tue Jun 02, 2015 11:05 am

Michael Tyler brings you yet another great project for all you hot beverage drinkers. This unique Tea Chest has three interior compartments to attractively stow 45+ tea bags near your beverage area in your kitchen or dining room. The lid design features a faux "pierced tin" effect which is accentuated by dabbing silver paint on the pierced area panel.

This project is available to Aspire 8.0 users or higher.


The finished dimensions of this project are approximately 12.5 " W x 6.75 " D x 4.375 " T.

Good morning.

Just a quick clarification please.

On the project page under the not is a reference that this project is for both Aspire and scarves, however all other references are Aspire.

Is the project compatible with vacarve? I like the look and the PDF looks straight forward.

Here is the snip from the project page that I refer too.

This free Vectric project requires Aspire 8.0/ VCarve 8.0 or higher.

Thanks bill

Apologies for the confusion, this project does require Aspire 8 as indicated at the top of the page. We'll correct the typo at the bottom.
