Customer Focus - Bob Hagan

This great hack was sent to us from Bob Hagan.  Notice the detail achieved in the texture he used for the background.  

"It was made on a CNC Shark HD Pro."

Bob used his copy of Vectric's VCarve Pro V8 to create his layout.

"(models used are) by Design and Make, which is Deep In The Wild. The woodgrain background is from the, Elk Scenes." 

Both of those projects are included in the Wildlife Scenes Collection and are bundled together for a special proce.

"The Celtic Knot Frame is from Vectric."

It is easy to overlook the free clip-art that gets installed with your Vectric software.  In this case Bob took advantage of the Celtic weaves... nice choice!  

"It is made on 1” thick cedar, it is 21” tall and 24” wide. It has 3 clear coats of lacquer."

"Thank you for noticing the detail. I really enjoy your software."

Thank you Bob for sharing your project with us!

Hack of the Week No.112

Making Memories Frame - Beach theme

Summer has just begun so there is no better time than the present to get working on a vacation inspired frame to display your special memories in.  Swap out the starfish for another model to make a specially themed frame for any picture or occasion!

"Making Memories"

This picture frame layout was created using models from these projects:

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

Note - This hack was assembled in Aspire V8.5 for presentation purposes.  It could have been done in VCarve Pro V8.5 or VCarve Desktop V8.5.

Celtic rosettes for a window trim 

This Hack of the Week was inspired by a set of four celtic rosettes and a starfish themed hack that Don Harding sent in.  

The celtic rosettes use models from the Celtic Frame No.1 and would look great around a window or door.  

The starfish panel uses a model from the new Panel No.1 - Flowers project and the starfish from the Under the Sea No.1 project.  It would look great as a rosette or as a bit of wall decor at your cottage or by the pool.   

Thanks Don for sharing and inspiring us!!!
