The Basket Weave Table Caddy

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.

The Basket Weave Table Caddy

This month we bring you yet another great free project tutorial created by Michael Tyler for Vectric. This download is an essential product for all those who love to entertain friends and family with BBQ's, picnics and dinner parties. 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. Along with learning a great technique for glazing your material, this project is an example of how beneficial two-sided machining is for creating the side panel dado slots on the interior surfaces.

The finished dimensions of this project are approximately 12" W x 16.5 " L x 3.375 " H

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
