The 12 Projects of Christmas | Day 10 | Mantel Decoration with Todd | Vectric FREE CNC Projects

For this Christmas project video, I thought it would be nice if I designed and made a mantel decoration for my home this year. Digging around the woodpile in the labs I found a piece of white oak and a mystery cut-off that looks really distressed and would work great repurposed as a base. I took to Aspire to model up 2 reindeer to sit on top of the cut-off, sorted out a method to cut the project using VCarve and a way to assemble it.

In the video, for this project, I will share with you a couple great tips: how to use one file to set up a manually indexed piece of material, taking advantage of the model position in your material to create assembly tabs, and how to deal with a short cutting surface on a tool. Lots here and I hope you download and cut the project for your home this year!

The end piece has a very rustic old fashioned Christmas feel and I’m sure you will agree it could fit in with almost any Christmas theme. I hope you enjoy this project as much as I did making it.

Be safe, and happy holidays
