The Bookpile Box | Michael Tyler's FREE CNC Project of the Month | Vectric

This project is an interesting and attractive box made to resemble a pile of old, stacked books. The lid resembles a slightly oversized book made to overhang the “books” that are stacked underneath to provide a convenient “lip” when lifting the lid.

The lid of the book box was intentionally left “plain”. However, this does lend itself to customization on your part, if you would like to create a nice design on the lid!

I used Aspire to create the book spines, then exported as STL to use in VCarve. A few of the software features used while designing this project included the Drawing and Node editing tools, Moulding Toolpath, Vector Offset, and Boundary Create, Interactive Trim (scissors tool), Rail Sweep, and Create Shape modeling features.
