Carl and Don just keep hacking around!

These Weekend CNC Warriors seem to really enjoy project hacking and keep sending in their very inspirational hack ideas.  Some of these hack will become finished pieces and some have been hacked together just for fun.

Carl was inspired by the Let's Ride No.1 project and felt it would make for a great start to a steampunk hack.  He added in a bit of raised text and a gear using his CarveWright software.

Looking good Carl!


Don Harding

This is a fun one... using the On the Lake Cottage Sign project.  Still a work in progress but it's a great start!

Don keeps on hacking, not only to help build his layout skills but also for inspiration.

These hacks are a few he printed out and hung in his shop to keep the creative juices flowing!


This is one of his hacks that made it to a finished piece.  We love the way he used the round circle shape from the Mother's Garden No.1 project and the pan head motor from the Let's Ride No.1 project!  

Keep those hacks coming Don!

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

Henry Landry is now "Weekend CNC Warrior" Approved!

Henry sent in this project hack he laid out using a couple of our projects and some models he had in his own library... a real hack!  He used models from our  Farm Fresh No.1, Grill Master No.1 and Pick-Up League Hockey CNC projects.


Henry's finished project is  hand painted and looking pretty sharp!

"Now a few coats of varnish and a felt backing"

With those finishing touches we are pretty sure the "Landry" family will love it!

Kevin Kennedy you are "Weekend CNC Warrior" Approved!


"This is my first CNC Mini Carve and my 3rd carve ever. Very happy with how it came out look forward to doing more."

Yes, Kevin, you should be happy.  Glad we could be part of your 3rd CNC project!!!  

"I am using the carvewright C version and I have designer 3 software. I just purchased the machine in September and with a lot of help from people on the forum I am up and running and in fact have sold 6 of these plaques already."

Below are 2 more of Kevin's projects he made using the Pick-Up League - Football mini-project.

I think we can all agree that Kevin is creating some pretty nice pieces!!!  His attention to his finish scores big points and we are sure the recipients of the plaques were more then happy!

Thank you so much for sharing and, Kevin, you can consider yourself "Weekend CNC Warrior" Approved!
