Collapsible Basket

Somewhere along the way I saw a video for a collapable basket made using a scroll saw and just had to figure out how to do it with a laser.

Was also the perfect excuse to play with circular living hinges!

Came out very nice!

Awesome!

The handle which also supports the sides is a great idea! A long time ago I tried to make a scroll saw pattern basket where the sides self support, but it didn’t work because it was designed to be cut at an angle in the scroll saw to give sloped sides, and I couldn’t figure out how to do that in the laser.
