I'm looking forward to seeing this.
I have used the Box Creator gadget a few times and I love it.
I'm currently aiming to use it for "underneath drawers" for the kitchen units. Just boxes with wheels.
First prototype done and currently under review by the planning dept. . . (Mrs. JimCad) :D

Also looking forward to this. Could you also include a Mrs button?
They do like to be included in the design process.
Wheels on boxes sounds like fun!

Current plan is to face the fronts with Parquet flooring that I took up from the kitchen before the build started. Not doing very well on removing the bitumen with my thicknesser / planer. Have to keep cleaning the machine. Then it's handles or a slot for fingers, square slot or shaped? ? ? ? ?
First plan was "do the box" then fix the decorative front to it.
Made one for her to see.
She's not keen on that one so looks like I have to omit the front and create a special one. ( Far more work for a novice ) as there are 4 different sizes.
Ah well it's a good job I'm retired and "just sitting around doing nothing all day" :D

Will look at it. A couple of suggestions:
  • you probably should have started a new “official” thread rather than re-using this sneak preview one (but that’s a picayune point)
  • for the installation instructions (and for all other Easy… ones) you should add a note about hidden filename extensions in Windows resulting in xyz.vgadget.zip filenames (see this link and feel free to use the image and text). There are more and more posts here recently where the solution is in that note,

Yeah, maybe I should have started a new thread. I believe I will do it anyhow that way it will be posted in both places but any future updates and/or comments, possible issues, etc... to the gadget will go (ha, ha wishful thinking, huh? I will deal with it!) into the NEW thread.

(got a city named Picayune not far from where I am living)

Yup, that is a good idea I will take note of your suggestion and put it into a future update.

Thank You,
Stephen (adze_cnc)
