    I haven't really been following this, but there is a thread on the Vectric forum regarding a child's puzzle chair - This would be a good exercise in 'reverse engineering' for those of you who want to sharpen their drawing & toolpathing skills. It is a fairly generic design, so the heart could be replaced with a star, a car, a flower etc, depending on what your little 'peep' is into...

    No doubt the whole thing could be done in PartWorks, but some may find visualization of the joinery a little easier using a full 3D program like Rhino or Sketchup. This is not something that I personally have an interest in...but(!), if a few of you had an interest in making one, why not each take a part, draw it up & share your files as part of a joint effort of sorts? Just an idea...

    Of course, you could also contact Greg and see if he is willing to share or sell his design.

    The chair is 6 pieces.

    2 rocking sides
    1 seat
    1 back
    1 front rail
    1 key

    all pieces lock together.

    Thank you,

    greg

    There you go Dan, making more cool furniture. What is the cutting time for something like this Laser vs. Bot? Good job buddy!

    Talking

    The Bot would be quite a lot faster probably at least 3 times Jack, but when the lasers done its finished no sanding or messing around, or hold downs needed and the edges are flame sealed ...

    Dan,

    How do you finish the edge?
    Does the black rub off?
