Hack of the Week No.82

"Joy to the World
the WINE is here!"

Tis the season to entertain so we thought it would be nice to create a layout that would work for a wine bottle coaster.  Using the plate from the Thanksgiving No.1 project we sized it so that the center recesses diameter was just over 3" (aprox. average wine bottle base is or what a quick Google search suggests it is).  Then we made the shape height of the model .35" to make the recess deep enough to set the bottle in.

The Christmas tree vectors that we used to simulate the VCarving (and were designed to be VCarved using your Vectric software) were free and downloaded from this year's Vectric Christmas Advent Calendar.  

There are plenty more to be had this December so you should keep that link around and check back every day till Christmas.


This wine bottle coaster layout was created using models from these CNC projects:

The font we used to simulate the v-carving on this layout is called: Palatino Linotype

Why not hack together your own layout mixing and matching models from other projects or from your own library!  For some great inspiration check out our  hacks page!

Be safe and let the chips fly!
