Saw this Key Caddy carving project in a recent copy of Canadian Woodworker. I liked the design, and decided to cut one, since we could make good use of it. Converted the drawing into a vectored grafic, and cut it on the CNC. This one is done in cedar, as I like the grain it shows. As always I will share the vectored files.

Nicely done but I have an issue with the softness of cedar and the inherent chip-outs. I’d like to try that on a piece of birch or walnut if your offer of files is still good!
Kudos on building your own machine! I’m not there yet but if this Virus goes much longer I will be closer to that goal! My current studies are in the Arduino world and I am having a blast!
Any thoughts on Centroid controls?

I agree with the comment with cedar. I’ll be glad to send you the file. I use Aspire V10,I think the best is if I send you a .dxf file with all the toolpath information. That should make it easy for you to import and execute. I see no way to attach a file, so if you send your email address to [email protected], I will be able to send an attach file to you.
Thanks, Henri
