Here is a project I designed with the 6th grade math teacher and the middle school tech coordinator in the Bullis BITlab. It involves a little simple vector drawing with Google Drawings, a lot of student engagement and working things out, and a laser cut final product. Designs could also be cut by hand with mat board or paper. Steps and pictures on my blog post here:

Interesting project, thanks for sharing. Good to see maker projects ( CNC tools, no less!) being used in maths education.
