Thanks, Mark! Generally, I’ve just been making things as gifts, primarily because I have such little interest in ever making the same thing more than once. I’ve sold a few items just because people asked for them - like the gift card holders. Those take like 30 minutes to design, engrave, cut and finish - so they’re relatively painless.
Thanks! I don’t actually have plans for the holder, because all I did was cut the circular base out on the x-carve, the wings that hold the coasters in I just traced the general shape of the curves onto a board and cut them out with a bandsaw and sanded it to fit. The holder was really an afterthought for me.
The designs were actually engraved on the x-carve then painted black/sanded and clear coated. If you have a laser - that would probably work even better, but I used what I had.
Great designs, beautifully executed. I just ordered a 1000mm X-Carve and looking at things like this just makes me more anxious than ever for it to arrive. Can’t wait to start using it although I realize I have a very long learning curve in front of me before I will accomplish anything as nice as you’ve done. The only experience I have with CNC is the reading I have done on this forum so thank you for sharing your work. It’s very inspiring!!
