This is a heart shaped box. I generally cut these from cedar and finish with mineral oil. This gives them a nice color and retains the lovely cedar smell. Adding a V-carved name to the top makes a nice gift. The file is from a video tutorial that also covers getting the top centered for v-carving.

mtconsulting posted 3 years agoIn your youtube video you have the following toolpaths 1) top lip, 2) bottom lip, 3) pockets, 4) cutout. since you use the same outside profile for both lips in this program, the bottom is created with a .65mm lip (paper thin) and the top has a 1.88 mm lip creating a lot of slop between the two. your video shows cutting the top lip contour = inside left and your bottom lip contour = outside right. can you update the attached program to show these changes?

queenoftarts posted 2 years agoThank you for the great file and video. I made my mom the heart box for her birthday.
jeclark posted 2 years agoGlad you like it.
JRock81 posted 1 year agoI downloaded the file but when I ran the simulation, it doesn't look correct. It looks like I may have to edit the toolpaths or could you upload a corrected file? Thanks in advance.
tsetsefly posted 1 year agoi see issues as well (for example there is no pocketing of the main box area). Maybe an older version of CC is acting different with current version ? I also only see 2 paths in the heart box top where it looks like there should be 3 from the video
