This week we finally start to dive into the design and CAM of our projects. Erick will discuss how he intends to make his whole project with the CNC and no other power tools with the exception of a drill for the hinge screws and a palm sander before staining. He designed the project with production in mind, where all the parts are held in a custom vacuum fixture so he can use traditional lumber. Even the 45 degree miter joints are going to be milled on the CNC using a special Gadget from Vectric.
This episode is a little different because there has to be a video component to it, in order to best explain what he is doing and how it will all work. The video below contains the podcast audio along with the screen recording of what he is talking about on the episode

Great info on why it’s good to leave the cubes below as support while still allowing for vacuum suction!
