Changes to the original.

Carved in 1" maple, sanded to 220, and finished with mineral oil.

Widened the overall size, added holes for pens, and personalized. To speed the cut, I started with 1/4" high speed bit. This bit will not cut the lettering. After the cut was completed and the machine returned to home, I had swapped the bits to a 1/32" then modified the file by deleting all elements except text, then ran the carve again. BE CAREFUL not to move your machine from the original home while changing the bits.

Just a note. With the new Easel features, you can swap the bits without the hokey pokey above.
