I’ve made these before. This is a new design.
It looks really good.
Witch bit do you use? How deep do you carve it?
Actually, the outer shape and the holes for the binding are the stuff done on the xcarve. That is a very basic carve, any bit will do fine.
The image is done with a cheap chinese diode laser, only 2.5W. Not great for cutting stuff, but engraves images like this pretty well. It probably goes only 1/32" deep into this cherry, but that’s fine with the great darkened surface it leaves.
Looks great! very clean
Another good one, Steve. I still can’t find a decent deal on a binding machine.
