General Information

An easy carve of a Kitchen measuring conversion Chart. Carved out of 1/2" Cherry, using 1/8" bit, 30 degree v-carve and 1/8" for the perimeter. The Drill point at the bottom left use to ensure all multiple carves start at the same location (x=.25, Y = .25). Wife and friends love this item.

Looks Great! How are you getting the contrast between the engraving and the face of the board?

It’s the natural contrast from the wood. Being that the face is sanded down to 400 grit yet the engraving isn’t sanded at all. I have found that cherry shows more of the contrast, however they all have once a spray finish or oil is applied. Glad you liked it!

are you using the 1/8 bit first and then going back over with the 30 degree v-bit

This is a very nice project. I'm not sure how the guide holes work when you flip the piece over to carve the back. Do you flip the wood vertically of horizontally?

It is very nice and usefull but i am confused . in the general information you write 30 degree v bit but in the program you select the 60 degree v bit for the number and symbols . Which bit should we use. Thank in advance

I have tried both a 60 and 30 degree bits. It depends on the wood species used

Answering This is a very nice project. I'm not sure how the guide holes work when you flip the piece over to carve the back. Do you flip the wood vertically of horizontally? I have a jig that I carved the board to sit in this ensuring it’s in the exact position for zero back and front carving

when I open in Easel, I get none of the text except for your logo. Is there an additional file I need?
david hahn
Shannon Dolese
There should be 3 sheets with in the design section of the file
Shannon Dolese
david hahn
could you do me a favor Shannon and look again at your website on Inventables? To my knowledge, the design section with the 3 sheets seems to be missing.

Shannon Dolese
David, I opened the file/project from the Inventables site and all 5 sheets are there. I don't know exactly what the issue is with regards to what you are getting. May want to contact Inventables for assistance. Sorry I could not help you any further.
