    A couple of bits of Vectric 3d clipart, profile cuts and pocket cuts. Straightforward project apart from having to make a jig to hold the end pieces for cutting the pockets on the inside, and I had to cut a pocket in my spoilboard to get the height I needed to cut a pocket in the feet. Oh - and lots of sanding!
    Mrs C has been complaining for years about newspapers left lying around on the chair she wants to sit on (I'm supposed to leave them on my chair?:p) and it's hard to avoid the complaints during lockdown so I thought I'd make this in order to keep the peace.
    The drawer base from a victorian wardrobe provided the mahogany for the ends (approx 300 x 400 x 9.5 mm), an offcut of mahogany left over after helping my son build himself an electric wheelchair provided the feet ( 2 off 190 x 50 x 19 mm) and some 1/4" plywood for the sides and base.

    I will upload the *.crv files later along with details of the jig etc.

    Files uploaded.

    I made a jig for holding the end pieces when I flipped them to cut the pockets on the insides for the plywood sides and base - Vectric makes this really easy - I used the vector for the profile cut on the ends, but told Vectric to cut inside the vector instead of outside in a scrap piece of mdf. Squared up the rounded corners with a chisel and had an interference fit for the end panels.
