The 12 Projects of Christmas 2020 - Christmas Tree Candle Holder

Post by RebeccaJ »

On the seventh day of Christmas Vectric made for me… a Christmas Tree Candle Holder!
This project is a nice quick one that you can get machined and up on display in no time! This project consists of several 2D toolpaths and a little bit of v-carving to create the decorative snowflake for the base.

You can watch the video here:



The file is set up to use with 0.49” thick sheet material, all you need to do is adjust the slot widths on the “layout to adjust for material Z” layer to that of the material thickness you are using and fillet all the internal corners to the radius of the tool you plan to use!
I have included the test area that I used to check that the parts fit together nicely too, as it’s always good to do test cuts before machining the entire project!

I hope you enjoy this project and if you fancy having a go for yourself then you can download the files from here:

Happy Making!
