New FREE Project - Spooky Spider Box

Post by Olly »

Welcome to the Labs sessions! We love to make and share projects with our community and enjoy nothing more than providing you with FREE monthly CNC projects that you can download and cut for yourself!

Each project comes with its own video for you to watch telling the story of what we’re making from start to finish. It includes technical software footage, machining each part in the Labs and finishing the project, and as an added bonus, we throw in a few tips based on our experience! We would love to see what you turned this project into so download the files from your V&CO account then share what you’ve made on the Vectric Forum.

Over the years Vectric and Design and Make have been adding to there library of Halloween themed CNC projects and CNC ready clipart, keeping users inspired through the “spookiest time of the year”. This year Todd thought it was about time to create a project that puts the “trick” back into “Trick or Treat”!

We are sure many of you out there have seen the spider trick box. You know the one, slide the top open looking for a treat and a spider jumps out and touches your hand… Eeek! Fun for most, scary for others so pick your victim carefully!

In the video Todd will show you how to use a few scraps of wood, the box creator gadget and a bit of nifty thinking to make everything work as it should. Not only will you need wood, but an old umbrella or coat-hanger for the wire, a dowel, some string… and don’t forget a plastic insect of your choice. This is an easy one, that is sure to keep the kids busy, and the adults on the edge of their seats!

This FREE project comes with the file(s) for you to download from your V&CO account. For those of you yet to try our software packages, why not download our FREE trial software with these project files and give it a go!

We love to see what you make, so try out one of the projects for yourself then share your creative inspiration on the Vectric Forum or tag us on our socials.

Happy Making!

Spooky Box with epoxy trick-or-treating ghost made from Dollar Store bamboo cutting boards. Probably not the best 'wood' for this project because it very easily splits. Thank you for the plans.
