I am still very new to CNC and Easel. I am trying to make a few signs, and I am interested in making the edge look kind of like “live edge.” Can this be done using Easel and X-carve?
A profile cut for the edge, and numerous smaller pocket shapes for the edge gaps
For sure it can. Neat idea.
Turned out good. Did you cut the outline on the machine or with something else?
Love it. Well done.
It turned out better than pretty good. Awesome job!
Thanks. Yes, but I didn’t have the depth set right, so I had to finish cutting with a bandsaw.
Thank you so much! I’m still learning a lot. I’ve watched a lot of your YouTube videos and they’ve really helped!
WOW… You say you’re new to CNC and you made that?! That looks amazing. I would love to see a tutorial regarding how you did that…
Thank you. I have been using a vinyl cutter and Silhouette software for a few years just as a hobby, and I started playing with an X-carve sometime in February I think. As far as the edge, I just used the point/segment tool in Easel to make a random ‘crooked rectangle’ around my design. Then I added some triangles and other small shapes around the edge. After it was cut, I used a sander to smooth it out a little. Thanks again for the kind words!
The tree on the left is beautiful.
Are you willing to share the file?
I just reread your first post.
I guess its not yours.
Great job on the sigh tho.
With the Cameo, I’ve used Silhouette Studio and with Sure Cuts A Lot, US Cutter Lasperpoint II.
With Sure Cuts A Lot, I’ve got a small preference for Laser point. Bigger computers, simpler applications, cheaper substitutes for blades. Having the rollers together, too, makes it simple to use tiny vinyl scraps.
I use the silhouette studio at home, though. Does not recognize the format of SVG (I use Inkscape which uses that as a default). It can use DXF files, so I’m only going to export them. I’ve got to simplify the Silhouette file once I put it in.
I avoided Cricut because I hate to be cloud-dependent.
very new to CNC and wood working. What type of wood is the “Willmon” sign make of?
