Add any names, icons, or pictures to a tag that you want.
Take care to consider the size of the design(why the poop emoji on the top tag has no eyes).
If you’re using a small size bit you may be able to cut the names into the wood, but I personally found all my designs to be best when raised up.
Decide what bit size you want. I found 1/16" or even 1/32" bits allowed icons to be included, but drastically increased the cut time. I originally made a batch of 10 of these on Christmas eve before leaving on a 2 hour drive…so at the time I made the designs simpler and used a 1/8" bit to be faster.
Clamp your board down and cut.
Estimated time to cut per tag by bit size:
1/32: 90 minutes
1/16: 45 minutes
1/8: 20 minutes.
After cutting the tabs away and giving the whole thing a light sanding apply some oil. The two tags shown were rubbed with with mineral oil and nothing more.
