    OK here is my mock up for the plan, want to do 10-20 of these and I can get 3 to a sheet of 4mm 60" x 120" white corplast. All ideas and criticism welcome.

    It is cut as a single piece with six sides, and one overlaps for structure, makes a 5 sided tree.

    Is that with the 3mm coroplast sheets? If so was your supplier a local or national supplier? If national what is their name please.

    Thanks,

    That was for 4mm sheets 60" x 120" and I was quoted $18.00 ea, from Allied Plastics in Dallas, TX, dont know if they have a nationwide coverage or not.

    At the request of a number of people for a "cone" style mini-tree, we at HolidayCoro have produced a final prototype that uses this design a starting point and improves on it in several ways:

    * An easy to disconnect top/base that allows for stacked storage
    * Allows the use of the following light types: RGB 12mm Nodes (up to 8), RGB rectangle modules (3, 6 or 9), 100 mini lights (LED/Incandescent), C7 (up to 3) and C9 (up to 3)
    * 13.7" wide at the base, 35" Tall
    * A black coro base that prevents light scatter and provides a raised base for people with grass or snow conditions
    * A reinforced base to cone connection (optional) for people that live in high wind locations
    * A simple, ultra-low cost staking system
    * Vertical fluting on the front face of the cone
    * Designed and cut on a CNC machine to exacting tollerances
    * Total first time assembly is about 5-15 minutes depending on the type of lights used

    I'll follow up with a link in the next day or so and offer a intro discount for DIYC people.

    Here is a pre-production version showing a white base (the production unit has black):

    We've finally completed all the assembly videos and product descriptions. You can the new HexaTree here:

    Dave:

    Very nice. They'll give me pause about what I should do for minitrees this year.
