Do you enjoy long walks on the beach, sunsets and the smell of the sea air?  If you do then this project is a perfect match for you.  

This is the first in a series of 3 sea and ocean themed projects.  All  have been inspired by what you might see in the shallow pools of water you find while walking along the beach.  Things like seashells, starfish, smooth rocks and driftwood give you a glimpse of what you might encounter on the seafloor.  Using the wavy tile and seafloor texture, included in this project, you can create some interesting wall art, cottage signs, coffee tables and even a headboard that will surely keep you dreaming of the surf. 

We have designed a pile of neat features into this project that will make it even easier to use and re-use.  These features include:
- Wavy tile that accepts V-Carving or even the addition of raised text.
- Wavy tile can be tiled end to end to make a longer layout and models can be tucked up under the raised border to create a more interesting project.
- Wavy tile has a flat bottom so it can accept almost any model and will also let you get the most "Z" depth out of the added model.
- Merge seafloor texture into the wavy tile to give it a seafloor look.
- Driftwood stick has raised bits that you can tuck models underneath.

When you put that seashell to your ear do you hear the sounds of the sea or your CNC working?!

Thanks Weekend CNC Warriors for these project images! 

Weekend CNC Warrior, Don Harding, sent in these "work in progress" pictures of his Under the Sea project.  He used the included Assembled Layout and in the end added in some V-Carving to make a very unique gift!
