Cut the cork sheet into a 12×5 sheet. You need to cut the sheet size down to better secure it to the machine bed.
Double sided tape
cover the entire back side of the cork with double sided tape. The tape is what we ail use to secure the cork to the material bed, so it is very important to tape the entire back side.
Secure cork to the base
Press the double sided tape down to the material bed. Make sure the material is safely secured.
Program and run the file
I used a Makercam.com to program and a gcode sender run a shapeoko machine. The settings I used are included in the video below! You can use other programs and machines as well. This file will also work for laser cutting.
Use as you please
You can now use your Speak Your Mind cork as a message board, coaster, or trivet!
