The Basket Weave Table Caddy is a convenient tote tray for carrying eating utensils, plates, napkins and/or condiments to a serving table. The project features a “weaved” design created with Aspire’s powerful Extrude and Weave Tool. This tool is a lot of fun to experiment with, and you may want to make your own custom weave design!
The sample was made using kiln-dried Select Pine and finished with a glazing technique. A glazing instruction article is available for download directly from the Vectric Forum Technical Archive.
This project is an example of how beneficial two-sided machining is for creating the side panel dado slots on the interior surfaces. Alignment is easy and uses just two dowel pins for accurate alignment between the front and backsides of all the side panels.
The size of the Table Caddy allows for storage inside a kitchen drawer when not in use.
The finished dimensions are about:
12″ W x 16.5″ L x 3.375″ H
This free Vectric Project requires Aspire 4.5 or higher.
