Clamp it to the X-Carve

Clamp the project to the X-Carve cnc machine, you can use the below link for the free plans in easel for the hold down clamps i use. You can use these on your X-Carve to cut them out.

The project is made from 2 pieces of framing timber about 150mm long laminated together and smoothed with a hand plance.

Carve it out

Press Carve in easel and let the machine work its magic and carve out the cone and phone holder.

4

Apply the finish

Sand the project and then apply some Danish oil with a rag, Danish oil gives a nice close to the wood feel. Danish oil is a mix of tung oils and varnish.

I also used a Veritas block plane to add a chamfer to the edges,

Never mind just use an inside outline for all the outside circles and a "fill" for the innermost one, for speed using the biggest cutter that will fit.
