« Part 2: modeling the new design Part 3 of Kitty Condo - CAD/CAM primer series Part 4: preparing files for the CNC router. »

Once the overall design is done… each of the parts needs to be detailed and the joinery decisions made.

Because I knew I would CNC cut the parts cut from the salvaged 1/2” particle board, I played to the strengths of the tools and used as many slots, pockets and lap joints as I could.

bottom and top

sides

platform

end with door

Stair treads

Hopefully, if all goes accurately with the cutting and if I didn’t botch the layout…. the assembly will pretty much lego block together with some wood glue and a few brads.
