Making a CNC Heart Tray


© 2021 ToolsToday

Just in time for Valentines Day, a quick and easy CNC project that looks great and can be personalized in any way you want! toolstoday.com

Cut using Amana Tool® CNC router bits on the Axiom AR8 CNC machine, this project can be resized to fit any size material you would like. I would recommend the material be roughly 3/4” thick at a minimum leaving yourself with 0.25” of wood after dishing out the tray with the bowl bit. Use 220 grit paper and then apply the finish of your choice.
