    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.
    End pieces;-
    Roughing pass 1/4" two flute router bit S 10,000 rpm, Feed 2000 mm/min, stepover 3.175mm, plunge 254 mm/min, DOC 1 mm.
    Finishing path 1/8" ball nose S 17,000 rpm, Feed 1270 mm/min, stepover 20%, plunge 381 mm/min.
    Profile 1/4" two flute router bit, S 10,000 rpm, Feed 2000 mm/min, plunge 254 mm/min, DOC 1 mm.
    Pocket 1/4" two flute router bit, S 10,000 rpm, Feed 2000 mm/min, plunge 254 mm/min, DOC 1 mm.

    Feet;-

    I will post the *.crv files later - they are too big at the moment so will have to zip them.
