Jonathan bought a 3040 CNC machine with a 350W DC spindle.
He’s already a machinist but I’m familiar with this particular machine class so I I’ve been showing him some software tool-chain examples and general operation.
I figured coasters where a great project to get started. We used inside/outside profile cutting, pocketing and engraving.
We finished a couple with danish oil. Doesn’t seem worth the effort. They seem nice with bare wood and are more functional…
Jon came up with a nice method of staining then engraving. Gives high contrast and shows wood grain well. His coasters are a reference to this silly youtube video.
