X,y axis positoning

I position my project and use the measures on the screen and board, then it carves on the left hand side of board, does not center as shown. do I need to change some settings?
I am using the xcarve and easel software

Are you using the lower left hand corner for your x and y zeroing?

Sounds like your axis movement calibration might be off…

What cnc model is this and can you provide the grbl settings?

They are the bottom of the machine inspector screen.

Alternative you can use the center of the board as the work zeros, like this…
