Looking back at my desires for the design I first wanted a stable and level platform to use my machine on without having to use it on a table.
Yup! Even on the carpet!
I am going to reclaim my table tops from around the house – woohoo!
Next I asked myself for a stable and level platform for the mat to run on at the front and back.
Yas! Perfect :)
Just enough, but not too much. If I did want to use this on a table, I could use more than the table depth as the mats could run beyond those boundaries.
Looking good so far.
Finally, a place to store accessories and mats.
Two compartments, of different depths, perfect for accessories or pens or whatever, and the whole unit has a lengthy slot underneath into which the 12″ x 12″ or 12″ x 24″ cutting/scanning mats can be stored.
So that would be a YES!
An added benefit that I had designed into the final outline was the fact that I could access the power port …
Could have been a bit tricky to use the machine without that.
Hmmm, looks a little ‘wooden’ though. Think it needs some colour. Time to get decorating…
A couple of thin coats of gesso to get me started.
Had a lovely pie and pea lunch whilst that dried and then went back and gave the outer area a couple of coats of sky blue.
But now what?!
Eek, creative block reached!
Hmmm, I think that I should use the Scan N Cut in some way to finish this off, but how?
I think that I am going to have to come back to this next week. In the meantime, I would love to hear your thoughts on how you would decorate it. Do pop them in the comments section below – I look forward to hearing your thought!
Right, more MDF designing to do so must dash.
See you next time.
