Beginner Mother's Day Custom Plaque

  • Software:
    Aspire/ OpenBuilds Control Software
    Machine Time:
    2 Hours
    Bit or Laser Size:
    3 Tool Paths: 1st- .125" Ball Nose, 2nd- .25 90 Degree V-Bit, 3rd- .25 End Mill
    Feeds & Speeds:
    I followed the "Speeds and Feeds" from this resource: https://openbuilds.com/projectresources/materials-speeds-and-feeds-chart.303/
    .75" Thick Pine Wood
    With Mother's Day right around the corner I thought this would be a cool project to share. I created the 3D relief carving using Aspire, and I created bit maps of the carving to cut out the profile. I used a .25" 90 Degree V-Bit to complete the text engraving.

    This was super fun to make and the LEAD CNC operated flawlessly!
