Groomsman Invitation

Just wanted to share a small project made for a customer this weekend.


Is this lasered?

Could be but might be a engraving bit or the smaller endmill.

Yeah I was just wondering because the text seams slightly darker and it is super precise

No. I used a 30 degree v bit, 1mm cut


I wished you had posted this a couple of months earlier. Then I would have done this for my groomsmen. Really awesome work.

Sorry Foxx. I got the request last Wednesday, and carved them on Friday.

The text is darker as the engraving cut into the next layer of the ply, which is darker. The oil I used made the text stand out more. But I like how it does resemble laser engraved

When I looked at the first picture I thought to myself what are they going to do with dual light switch covers?


me too ha ha ha

really cool idea

The date convention is unique. I’ve never seen, always been mm/dd/yyyy. My son is getting married in Jul so I might have to show him this idea as well.

Common in Europe :slight_smile:

what did you do about the exposed plywood edges?

That’s how it’s done here in Australia. The correct way. :grin:

also, do you mind sharing the file? :slight_smile:

Nothing. It is only 4mm thick. The darker centre ply actually looked good with the 2 lighter exterior layers. I oiled the whole thing which accentuated the contrasting shades.
