This is an advent calendar with 24 little drawers. It is built with an hexagonal base. On 3 side it has 8 drawers each. On the 3 sides in between there is some seasonal decoration. On top there is a small house, a sledge and an tree.
All can be produced with a laser cutter out of 4mm plywood (except for the icicle which should be made from acrylic). I also included some of the openscad and blender source files that where used in the process of designing this. So you could use that to build on the design and make your own with a different sice.
The size of the drawers is (inside) 84 x 48 x 44mm
The size of the complete box (with the house and chimney on top) is about 450mm, the diameter of the hexagonal base plate is 286mm from side to side or 330mm from opposing corners.
You need 8 sheets of 4mm plywood: 600x300mm or a total of about 1.44m^2 +
All you need is the: adventcalendar1.svg it is all in one big file but the layout is
in 8 pages for 600x300 each.
There is no engraving: only cutting. It looks good if you put red colored paper inside and light it from the inside with some LEDs and you can paint it.
Of course the structure can also be used as a storage box for small parts.
You can also change the artwork.
It was designed with openscad, blender and inkscape
by me and my son. I did most of the openscad and my son most of the blender and some
of the artwork (x-mas tree).
