    Default Folding vending display case

    Made this case to showcase my kitchen utensils.

    It folds up to a size that fits in my display trailer shelf. Made out of hemlock its reasonable light and strong, the legs are red oak.

    Eric,

    Your suggestion for feeds and speeds are about right.
    I'm thinking the problem is the bit. Onsrud is my choice. I use VCarve Pro. Perhaps he should visit Vetric, Vcarve Pro and post over there.

    Wrong thread Joe.

    I should have been more specific, what CAD program did you design it in?

    The only part designed was the hangers I used solid works for that, the rest was just cut and fit.

    By cut and fit do you mean you cut it on your shopbot or by hand?

    Gotchya. That's what I figured. Are you using CAM in solidworks or are you exporting to Vectric and then making tool paths (obviously for the ShopBot made parts)
