This "First Day of School" plaque was created using models from these CNC projects:
The fonts we used to simulate the v-carving on this layout are called: Palatino Linotype and
Note - This hack was assembled in Aspire V8 for presentation purposes. It could have been done in VCarve Pro V8 or VCarve Desktop.
Be safe and let the chips fly!
