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!

Jim and his sports hack.

What a wreath!

WOW... now this is a Design and Make hack if we ever saw one!

This sports wreath, sent in by Jim Coats, hacks together almost all of our sports projects and then tosses in the fall wreath from the Thanksgiving No.1 CNC project and the ribbon from the Pick-Up League Golf CNC project!  This is the ultimate door hanging for the super sports fan!!!

Thanks Jim for sharing... and from what he says... "Got bored this weekend" turned it something pretty neat!

Be safe and let the chips fly!

Patrick Green is now "Weekend CNC Warrior" Approved!

When we designed the sports CNC projects it was with the thought that customers would take them and create sports awards for local sports teams.  The ability to either take the assembled layout or create their own and then customize it with players names, positions and jersey numbers made them a great value.  

Patrick Green has certainly seen the potential of the basketball and baseball projects.  He has come up with some very nice layouts and his results are tops!

The added paint to the basketball plaques sure makes that basketball pop!  It's a slam dunk!

Patrick also took the time to send us in these pictures of some baseball plaques he made.  Great layout with the home plate at the top and bottom with the bat on the sides!  Merging in that baseball jersey and then adding the jersey number is a great idea. 


"I use Aspire software with a CNC shark machine.  To finish it I lightly spray it with polyurethane spray so the paint doesn't bleed through, then I use paint pens to paint it then finish polyurethane with a spray. "

The results look great.  We're sure the players appreciate the plaques!  Something they will keep for years and years!


Thank you Patrick for sharing these projects with us!
