Steve's Projects

I used Carbide create and did it in 3 passes.
I loaded the EGA as a jpg.
Created an outline of the EGA 1/4" outside the jpg.
Created another outline 3/8" outside the first outline.
Pass 1 Cut the pocket using a pocket using a 1/4" endmill .400" deep on the inside of the first outline.
Pass 2 Used VCarve tab to carve the EGA using a 20 degree v-bit. Starting depth was .400", max depth .500"
Pass 3,last pass, was to cut-out the tray using a 1/4" endmill on the outside of the 2nd outline.
I used 8 tabs and I also taped everything down with some good double-sided tape.
I used a handheld router to round-over the bottom edge and cut the relief for the base.
I had planned it to be a catchall tray for my friends dresser, but his wife liked it so much it now hangs on the wall in their family room.

If looking to make many gifts easily think of the attached catchall tray I did for another marine friend.
It was much easier.

If anyone knows how I can improve on any of these please let me know.
I need to learn more.

Thanks so much do you have one for easel?

I don’t have any of the trays for Easel, I only have the free version of Easel.
And you need the Pro version for some of the bits I used.
