This is an easy project to make, but it does use two apps: the Xploder app and the Inlay Generator app. I thought a short video would help explain the steps for both apps.

Make sure to pay attention to the settings in each app for the best results. The process changes slightly based on the length of the name, the material thickness, etc.

I love this project. I am trying to change the name, how do you edit the name that is in the project? Thank you ahead of time

Since I used the "Xploder" app, it's not possible to change the name. If you watch the short video, you can learn how to make it with any name you'd like!

I'm super new to this and this may sound like a dumb question.. but if you used 3/4 wood for the pockets, why is the material thickness set for 1/2 inch for pocket?

It says the crave time is over 2hrs? Also there is no mention of any bits used?

Great project. Curious what kid-friendly paints folks used? We bought some childrens paint from Michaels and quickly realized it didn’t cover as much as we hoped.
