Free Project - 'Cool Cubes'

Post by StuartH »

The FREE Project of the Month for October, created by Michael Tyler for Vectric is
a customizable lift top cube that comes complete with three ready to cut designs.

http://www.vectric.com/WebSite/Vectric/ ... cubes.html

Each cube measures 4" x 4" x 4" and can be modified in a variety of ways such as changing
the lid to a hinge top, or by incorporating different designs on each cube panel.

The project is available to all VCarve Pro 6.5 and Aspire 3.5 users.

The Vectric Team :D

Thank you! I hope 'everyone' will do this one. It's a simple two-sided project that should help boost confidence that two-sided machining is nothing to be shy about. I must admit...there is a method to my madness...I am planning some future projects that do require two-sided machining and hope folks will feel at-ease with the process!

Vectric & Michael....

Here is my version of the Cool Cube project... Thanks for all you do.

I did a few modifications, (1) was to use Corian, (2) was to add a
bottom make from 1/2" material, and (3) use of own art files.

These were fun to do, and enjoyed the Corian results. The tan cubes
is for the wife, and the green for our daughter.

Thanks & Merry Christmas !!

I also made some changes to the basic project. I wanted a bottom and the top to be one pice not needing to have a piece glued to it. I also wanted the carving to be on all six faces. I used 1/2" MDF for now.
