The materials needed for this project are the following:
- 8 × 12 inch piece of walnut, 20 mm thick
- 8 × 12 inch piece of transparent acrylic, 1/8 inch thick
- 150 grit Sandpaper
Fasten your pieces to your X-Carve and start the carving process.
Once all 5 pieces are done carving, find any immperfections and sand them down with your 150 grit sand paper.
Make sure the long wooden piece is on the bottom and glue both short pieces to the sides. Make sure the 1/8 grooves are on the inside of the piece.
Place a litte bit of glue on the grooves, not too much because we don’t want squeeze out and insert the acrylic cut outs into the grooves.
Make sure to waterproof the wood so humidity doesn’t damage it. In this case I’d go for tung oil.
