1

Carve Design

11 minutes

On my Carvey with a 1/16" bit this took 11 minutes.

2

Use a hole punch to make holes for a letter-sized plastic sheet

3 minutes

I used a dry erase marker to mark the spots on a plastic report cover where I should use a hole punch to make holes for the rectangular grips to push through on the visor.

3

Press plastic sheet onto grips

2 minutes

Press the plastic sheet onto each of the rectangular grips, forcing them through the holes created with your hole punch.

Hi. Exactly which bit did you use?

I used a 1/8" upcut bit to cut these. I did one with a 1/16" and found the visor to be quite brittle.

What material did you use? I looked in Easel and it shows MDF. I am considering using expanded PVC.

I used MDF, but I'm sure expanded PVC would work great! I've also made a few out of plywood, which seems to work nicely as well.
