Poppins Umbrella Stand
I’m Michael Tyler and for more than 8 years I have been creating Vectric’s Free monthly projects. I’ve made everything from spring wreaths and mantle clocks, to snow sledges and cheeseboards.
Did you know there are already more than 80 projects free for Vectric customers to take advantage of and we’re working on more every month? Each zipped project includes the files relating to the project as well as a comprehensive PDF guide that covers all the key steps help you complete your project - including tips on materials, tooling and finishes. Since 2018 free projects also come with their own video that tells the story of the project from start to finish.
This month's free project created by Michael Tyler for Vectric is a practical 'slot togther' umbrella stand, available free of charge to all Aspire 4.5 and VCarve Pro 7.5 users.
The design is very easy to assemble, as the 19 cut pieces simply slot together to form the stand you can see below. You could then use the project within your own home, as a gift, or to sell at a local craft faire. You could also customize the design by using different materials and finishes, or even carve further decorative elements.
The finished dimensions of this project are approximately 13.5" Dia x 18" Tall.
If you go ahead and create this project, then it would be great to see a photo of your finished piece over on the Vectric Forum. Alternatively feel free to email us a picture of your finished piece at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Which Vectric software do I need to be able to open the free project files?
