Much Later...

octo_box_open.jpg

I have been using the mill for various little projects for a while now.  I made this little box and thought it was a reasonable example of the sorts of things one can do with this sort of equipment.  The working volume is not that big, so I am limited to small items only.  However, for those small items, it does quite well.  This box is about 3 inches in each direction and 1.5 inches tall with the lid.  I use it to hold various small items on my desk.

At this point, I'm considering this project pretty much done.  Unless I decide to add a fourth axis to the machine.  I have been hankering for a bit more working volume, so I may well be starting on a larger (4ft x 4ft) router table at some point.
