1

Plane

3 minutes

Start this project off by buying or planing sheets of material to .375 and 1.25.

2

Dimension

5 minutes

Cut both pieces of material to 6 inches by 6 inches.

3

Mount the Work Piece

3 minutes

Mount the thicker piece of wood to the X-Carve using double sided tape and set your zeros.

4

Cut

36 minutes

In Easel, run the work piece that is labeled “body.”

5

Mount the 2nd Work Piece

3 minutes

Mount the thinner piece of wood to the X-Carve using double sided tape and set your zeros.

6

Cut

4 minutes

In Easel, run the work piece that is labeled “Back.”

7

Sand

10 minutes

Sand both pieces where needed.

8

Apply Finish

10 minutes

Apply your favorite finish. I suggest a spray on poly for this one.

9

Assemble

4 minutes

Apply wood glue to the three ledges. Attach both pieces together using clamps, making sure even clamping pressure is applied.

10

Select a color

5 minutes

Use your favorite paper to add a pop of color to the art piece!

Paper should be cut to slightly less than 5 by 5 inches with the bottom corners rounded off. I suggest picking a few of your favorite colors and cutting them all to size at the same time. That way you can store them together in the slot and switch them out on a whim.

11

Hang and Enjoy

1 minute

Now that all of your hard work is done, select a choice spot on the wall and use either a screw or nail to hang your project. Once it is hung, feel free to switch out the colors as the seasons change or for whatever occasion arises.
