This video from Woodworkers Guild of America details how to precisely cut an oval box and lid on your ShopBot. Using a combination of techniques, the box is an excellent project for both experienced woodworkers and beginners looking to expand their skill set.

The shapes are created in VCarve Pro and cut on the ShopBot DesktopMAX. In the course of making the box, the video covers:

The overall dimensions of the box come to 4.75 x 8 x 1.75. The final product is a great example of how multiple techniques can come together in a subtle and elegant design.

This months project takes a somewhat blended inspiration from Baroque-period designs, tooled leather work, and skilled chip carvers like Wayne Barton. The result is a distinguished v-carved Mantle Clock that you can use yourself, give to someone or even sell! It is a simple project to do and can easily be completed over a weekend.

The v-carve design was created from a scan of my hand drawing imported into VCarve Pro, then manually traced using the drawing tools in the software to create clean vectors for the v-carving.

The overall dimensions of the Distingu V-Carve Mantle Clock are approximately: 2.25 W x 12 H x 5.18 D

It was modeled in Aspire 8.5 and cut on a ShopBot Buddy® PRSalpha BT48.

This project features a sliding lid disguised as a mans dress shirt and tie! Pulling on the shirt collar allows the lid to slide open and give access to the contents of the box (spare keys, change, watches, cufflinks, etc.).

The 3D shirt relief model was created in Aspire using reference photos of actual dress shirts to guide me. The Create Shape from Vectors and the Two Rail Sweep modeling tools were used extensively during the modeling process.

The wrinkled contour underlayment for the shirt model was created from a photo by utilizing the Create Component from Selected Bitmap feature in Aspire.

I also used the Smooth Filter and Sculpting Tools to tweak the contour model underlayment until I was happy with the result

This project features four padlock models finished to look like aged metal, then incorporated with a wooden plaque as a truly unique and convenient wall-mounted key hanger for you to enjoy!

The padlocks were created in Aspire using reference photos of actual antique padlocks as guides during the modeling process. The padlocks are machined separately from the plaque and are inserted as onlays into shallow pockets for precise positioning on the plaque. Thanks to the softwares handy Inlay Toolpath feature, the padlock cutouts and corresponding receiving pockets are automatically adjusted to compensate for bit diameters and yield a perfect fit.

The plaque features v-carvings and a beveled edge that compliment the overall vintage appearance. The powerful vector node editing features in the software were put to very serviceable use when creating the v-carve designs and customizing the lettering.

The overall dimensions of the Gatekeepers Padlock Key Hanger are approximately: 12 W x 9 H x 1.25 D

This Rustic Welcome Door Plaque will add homespun charm for your entryway! A simple silhouette of a cabin and the vertical welcome board greets visitors to your home.

The heavily-grained texture is entirely vector-based. Sets of irregular vectors were automatically generated with the Create Repeating Vector Texture Tool in VCarve (also included in Aspire). Two groups of vectors were profiled-on with a v-bit. Each vector group was set at different depths to yield the rough and weathered appearance.

Making vector-based textures is a lot of fun to experiment with. The slider values can be changed and the results previewed ad infinitum until you get the result you want.

The Vector Texture Tool can be very useful not only for rough textures such as in this project, but also for creating wavy flowing textures for wall panels, cabinet doors and all sorts of artistic or architectural projects!

Overall dimensions are about: 7.5 W x 25 H x 1.25 D

This interesting novelty clock is based upon the antique Model 50AL candlestick phone introduced in 1919 as the first free-standing tabletop dial telephone. Thus, began the era of rotary dial telephone sets which would span most of the 20th century.

The project features segmented construction for the handset and mouthpiece assemblies. Aspires two-rail sweep modeling features were used to create the segmented components and produce quite a reasonable simulation of an antique candlestick telephone!

An angled wedge platform for the clock insert was created using Aspires tilt feature applied to a modeled round disc shape.

The overall dimensions of the Vintage Candlestick Telephone Clock are approximately: 5.6W x 5.4D x 12W

It was modeled in Aspire 8.5 and cut on a ShopBot Buddy® PRSalpha BT48.

The Pineapple Fruit Server is an easy project you can cut in less than an hour and finish over a weekend. The pineapple shape is an iconic symbol of warmth, welcome, friendship and hospitality. The server makes a very nice addition to your family and friend gatherings! You can use it to serve whatever you wish – its not only for serving fruit.

The design was created in VCarve Pro and features a couple interesting vcarve techniques to form the diamondscalloped edging and the tapered crevice detail between the top leaves. I hope these techniques will stimulate some useful ideas for your own project designs!

The sample is made of Beech with a wipe-on, water-resistant salad bowl finish applied. A comparable water resistant finish of your choice will also be fine.

Overall dimensions are about: 8.25W x 13.7H x 0.75D

This Jade & Ebony box project is all wood, yet has a realistic appearance of carved green jadestone. The casual onlooker will be convinced its the real thing! The jade effect was created with a fun marbleizing technique described in the finishing section of these instructions. The best part is, anyone can do it!

The project uses the new Moulding Toolpath feature released to the public with Aspire version 8.5 (and VCarve). This introduces an easy and efficient method to create nicely profiled mouldings of all kinds. For example, the box sides for this project were generated with no 3D model at all. The new Moulding Toolpath is entirely vector-based. Its an amazing feature worth exploring for any project that requires moulding. (The Aspire & VCarve 8.5 User Manuals explain this feature in detail.)

The overall dimensions of the Jade & Ebony Box are about: 13W x 8D x 8H

The Boat Hull Nautical Shelf is an attractive way to display your small knickknack treasures for your home or office. It is especially fitting as an addition to a Nautical Decor!

The samples hull walls, shelves and boat tip were selectively stained. The edge trim and inside back panel were left a natural light color. The instructions outline how this was accomplished, as there is a specific order in which this is done. The two-tone wood finish on the sample is intended to resemble certain vintage wooden boats from the past. Of course, you may opt for a different type of finish, as you like. A shappby-chic pastel perhaps? In any case, have fun with it!

The finished dimensions are about: 10.25W x 21.5H x 3.625D

Im not sure Neptune actually uses a soap dish, but the name fits and the dish will make a nice addition to an aquatic decor! This is an easy project, carved and cut from 1×6 PVC trim board material found at any home center store.

The sample imitates a thick-cast bronze metal block with a shallow shell motif dish and a seahorse ornament complimenting the oceanic theme. It is coated with thickbodied metallic paints and a patina applied to yield an aged appearance. Hidden weight (BBs) inside the block assembly gives a heft to add to the illusion it is made of cast metal.

The finished dimensions of the sample Neptune Soap Dish are about: 6.4W x 4.4D x 1.45H

Here is a handy set of three heat-resistant table or countertop trivets representing three of the carnivorous food groups – Beef, Fish and Poultry!

The samples were finished with heatresistant paints in contrasting colors (silver and black) but you could opt to forego the two-tone and just use one color paint instead. The project files are intentionally kept separate, but you can create your own multiple layout for creating as many trivets per board, as you wish.

The dimensions of each trivet are about 9.5 diameter x 1.25 tall.

Here is an easy Spoon Rest project with a twist – this Vectric version features a hinged frame that swings up and over the main spoon bowl area to provide a built-in spoon handle support! Swing back over for compact storage.

The slight angle of the handle support helps keep drips from your spoons where they belong – in the spoon rest and off your counter top.

The sample was sealed and finished with a food-safe salad bowl finsh. A light washing after each use is all that should be required to keep your Spoon Rest in good shape. Mineral Oil can be substituted for the salad bowl finish and re-applied periodically. Either finish you choose should have a minimum of 3 coats applied.

Closed dimensions are about: 4.875W x 5.25D x 1H. Open dimensions are about: 4.875W x 8.875D x 1H.

Here is a cute tissue cover for standard size cube-style tissue boxes. The side panels are made to resemble groups of small branches or twigs and the top panel has a rather pronounced grained pattern to exaggerate the overall country-rustic appearance.

The twig branches were modeled using Aspires two-rail sweep. Textures were made by creating thin overlay components from photos of actual branches and then combined with components made from Texture Toolpath previews.

The finish on the sample is a glaze of brown acrylic paint to enhance the bark texture and top grain.

The finished outer dimensions of the sample Twiggy Tissue Box Cover are about: 6W x 6D x 6H

This cheerful and encouraging wall decor item is a nice addition for your own home or as a gift for friends and loved ones. The project features five v-carved word plaques with a background texture created by the Vcarve Pro software and machined with a small ballnose bit.

The sample is finished as old barn wood to mimic a rustic-reclaimed appearance. Of course, you can apply any finish you like – its a good candidate for a cool Sculpt Nouveau metallic patina finish too!

The project can easily be customized as a Christmas themed item (i.e., paint or stain with holiday colors), if desired. It can be assembled using 10 wood screws to enable disassembly for storage, or glued together as a permanent structure, as you wish.

Besides normal indoor use, it can be a nice and inviting decorative item for your outside entry door as well!

The finished dimensions are about: 12W x 1.125D x 22H

The Big Buck Bank project features a vcarve method to create an engraved appearance of the front and back of an enlarged dollar bill. I got the inspiration to try this technique from a discussion on the Vectric Forum. The procedure used was to create thin component models in Aspire of the front and back of a dollar bill image, import STL versions of each component model into separate instances of VCarve Pro 8, then create a finish toolpath with a large stepover setting to yield a line engraving effect. Sealing the material, then applying a dark paint or stain and wiping it off accentuates the carve details.

The coin access panel is a decorative v-carved inlaid part sized appropriately using the convenient Inlay Toolpath feature with automatic compensation for the tool radius in VCarve Pro (and Aspire). The access panel is secured with two round head brass machine screws and T-nuts hidden inside the coin compartment.

The dimensions of the Big Buck Bank are about: 10.5W x 4D x 5H

In response to numerous requests, this months project is an elegant mantel clock exclusively for Vectric Aspire users!

This clock was designed with an American 18th century neoclassical style in mind to adorn your mantlepiece, a side table or shelf. The interleaved flourish reliefs were derived from the Vectric clipart models included with Aspire 8. The tools in Aspire made it easy to slice-and-dice the existing models to create custom versions suitable for the clock. Sculpting, smoothing, tilts and fades allowed for blending and merging the components nicely.

The traditional coved arch top with the delicate recessed fan motif was modeled in another instance of the software, then imported into the front layout file to complete the project design.

The dimensions of the finished project are about: 9W x 3.625D x 12.5H

This project demonstrates how to use commonly available items to create an attractive stone and coral inlay appearance. In addition, the project files have a few tricks that could come in handy for your own personal projects, as well. The project was created entirely with VCarve Pro 8 and takes advantage of the new ability to directly machine 3D relief models.

The front and back panels of the vase utilized one of the included v3m clipart domes and was stretched/resized to form the convex shape. The edges of the front and back panels uses a 90 V-Bit assigned as a profile on to make the edges a little more interesting and shapely. Observing the files should clarify how the intended result was achieved.

The v-carve design on the front was done in the normal way, although it has a rather shallow flat depth to minimize the amount of material needed for the inlay fill.

The dimensions of the Inlay Vase are about: 5.75W x 2.75D x 6.75H

This project demonstrates how easy it is to create a wooden chain with your Vectric software and CNC machine.

In the past, this project would have required Aspire in order to run it. The chain link model itself was indeed created in Aspire, but imported (as an STL) into the new Vcarve Pro software where you are now able to directly machine 3D relief models! Please visit for complete details on this new feature and many more.

This is a two-sided carve with 14 link models on the front and 14 link models on the back of the material.

The project yields a wooden chain about 27 long. I used 3 of the links to create a doo-dad conversation piece, so the photos of the sample chain you see here only utilized 11 links. You can make a chain as long as you wish – just run the project as many times as required.

This Peanut Shell project features 2-sided machining and uses several new features introduced with Aspire version 8!

The files are laid out for 5.5 -wide material. This was done intentionally so that all files could be machined from the same 1×6 board for CNCs large or small. The main idea was to match the grain when the part slices were glued together. Each material length for the sample was cut in succession from the same board and kept in the same order and grain orientation when placed on the machine bed. This is not essential to do, but I rather liked the grain match effect.

The finished dimensions are: 5W x 13.2D x 2.25H

One of the most popular home beverage systems today is the single-cup coffee maker. Hot chocolates, teas and other hot beverages can be dispensed from many of these machines in addition to a variety of coffee flavors and blends. Most of these systems use a standard-size cup container that holds a flavored concentrate for mixing with hot water. These cups are commonly known as K-cups.

This project provides a useful way to organize and store up to twenty K-cups conveniently nearby your home beverage machine. The storage holder rotates on a small Lazy Susan bearing to view your beverage selections.

The design and finishing technique gives the appearance that the holder was made from slices and slabs of small logs or branches with the bark left on them. This will fit well with any country kitchen theme or even as a nice design contrast in a more contemporary kitchen environment.

The assembled dimensions are about: 7Diameter x 12 H

Early printing presses used wooden relief type placed into a frame called a chase. With that idea in mind, this project simulates a random grouping of old-style print blocks in a mirror frame. The varying depths of the blocks gives the illusion that they are actually individual parts and serve to hide and strengthen the joint where the two halves of the print block panel are glued together.

The project is an interesting exercise in toolpathing techniques. There are a total of 4 bits used, and there are quite a number of bit changes/swaps during the run of the print block panels. Even so, I hope youll find the end result is worth the extra effort. The toolpathing order is very important, as many of the toolpaths have start depths that depend upon a previous machining to a certain depth. Some paths are paired too, so please dont change the toolpath order when making modifications to suit your machine speed/feeds, material and bits.

The assembled dimensions are: 1.875D x 19 W x 19 H

Groups of Luminaria (also knows as festival of lights) are often seen in outdoor displays with candles set inside paper bags during various holiday seasons.

This version features a punched-tin style hole pattern through 0.25 -thick material. The holes are part of the decorative panel designs and let light peek through from the inside. The interior is lit with a battery operated flickering tea light instead of a candle.

These luminarias are intended for indoor use to be displayed on a shelf, buffet or dining table to make a nice addition to any holiday decor. The design is not especially holiday specific and depending upon your choice of finish, the luminarias could be displayed all year long if desired.

The assembled dimensions of each luminaria are about 5.25W x 5.25D x 9.5H

The Japanese Garden Box was inspired by the traditional rock garden (called karesansui in Japanese) using sand or gravel as a base with carefully placed islands of rock. Groups of three dark colored rocks is common. The sand is raked in patterns up to and around these rock islands to represent water ripples. The lid of the box imitates this cultural garden style.

The sample box was made from a single wood type. The end panels, lid and bamboo front and back panel finish was applied before assembly.

The files are purposely orgranized so you may easily machine contrasting wood types instead of applying a finish before assembly, if you wish.

This months Vectric project is based upon a Bentwood Rocker design. In the 1830s, a cabinet maker named Michael Thonet began experimenting with methods to make furniture out of glued and bent wooden slats. This eventually led him to a very successful career as his bentwood furniture designs gained much popularity which remains to this day.

This project does not contain any actual bent wood, but does try to reproduce the essence of the style in miniature form.

The Vectric Aspire software drawing and modeling tools make creating this type of project rather easy. The projects toolpathing sequence is carefully thought out and again, the software capabilities excel at making it possible to successfully machine a project such as this.

The photo frame cushion and seat back are magnetized to make insertion and/or changing of photos a simple and quick task.

We hope you have fun making your own Bentwood Rocker Photo Frame!

The finished dimensions are:3.5W x 7 D x 6 H.
