1

Mill Part

Clamp and secure material. Run the program with a 1/16th bit.

For the EASEL carving program you can use this Link

2

Cut out material

Using a small hand saw cut through the tabs on the sides of the design.

3

Bend

Using a heat gun slowly heat and bend the joints of the holder. The joints will heat up faster than the body of the piece and should be easy to move.

4

Thread and Tie

Using hanging material of choice, make a knot to anchor and thread strand through the bottom. Use several smaller pieces to fasten.

I'd love to try this project! What settings were used for the Feed Rate, Plunge Rate, and Depth per Pass?
