ROCKING CHAIR PROJECT
USING MASTERCAM & 4' X 4' MDF

Create, route and assemble a rocking chair (approx. 2'x1') in minutes using a Techno Router and the downloadable Mastercam files below.

Simply secure a flat piece of MDF on a Techno Router, then run the toolpath files and the Router cuts out the parts, the decorative carvings and lettering in just a few minutes. The Rocking Chair assembles without any screws, nails or adhesive. 

The best part of this project is that once you learn this basic cut to fit CNC manufacturing technique, you can expand on that knowledge to create other projects and assemblies!  

DOWNLOAD THE ROCKING CHAIR

Download the file Chair.Zip. This zipped download contains numerous files, including: setup and material instructions, various G-code (.nc)  and Mastercam files, warning and notes.


MAKING A WAGON
USING 3/4" MDF AND MASTERCAM

Similar to the popular Rocking Chair, the NEW Techno Wagon downloadable project expands your skills on a Techno Router, and Mastercam Software.

Just download the .zip files, place a 3/4'' sheet of MDF on a Techno Router, run the toolpath files, then assemble with 4 Screws and Lock Nuts. In minutes the Router cuts the parts and carves the wagon design easily.

The finished project can be painted or stained giving you a great home decoration or gift idea while expanding your CNC manufacturing technique.
