1

Mill base and stand

First we cut the corian parts for the base and stand of the planter. These can be done with either an 1/8th inch bit or by starting with a 1/4 bit to mill away the bulk of material and then refining with an 1/8th inch

2

Mill reverse side of base

For this step you will want to flip the corian sheet over and align it to cut the reverse side of the circular puck part. This recess is to allow room for the joinery between the legs.

3

Mill walls of planter

These rings will make up the walls of the planter. A fishtail or square ended bit is best for this cut. This will allow the steps to turn out crisply.

glue, sand, and finish

Once your side walls are cut you can glue them together. When the glue has set you can then file the slots if needed and sand the exterior walls.
