I made some coasters for my daughter. The coasters are band logos for bands that you old timers may not have heard of, lol! I wanted them to be beefy so that maybe they will stick around for awhile and be appreciated. They are 4.5" x 4.5", and the coaster is Cherry with a Walnut inlay. This was my first project since buying VCarve, and my first time trying inlays. They are not perfect, but not bad overall. Done using a 60 deg .25" V-bit and Ol’ Reliable #201 .25" flat end mill.
Note: Since these are most likely copyrighted, I am not selling these to anyone.
Feeds and Speeds:
Flat mill: 74 / 24
V-bit: 30 / 15
Carving in progress, it was easier and less time consuming to do the pockets on multiple coasters in one toolpath, but the inlays were carved one at a time to make it easier to glue together and saw apart:
Slash from Guns N Roses - this one is really good I think.
Red Hot Chili Peppers - got a little too happy with the sanding
Rollling Stones - I thought this was really good as well
Metalica - Centers of the A’s were too low to sand to
