Beki's Top Tip
Did you know that when you add tabs to the profile toolpath the software will default to placing tabs where it can avoid corners and curved regions, for much better placement minimizing the need for manual adjustment.

HOW TO MAKE an Ambidextrous Guitar with Tim Sway

Tim Sway has been busy in the labs this month creating an Ambidextrous Guitar, showing what steps and challenges he went through to get there.

Included in this project is a list and the details of everything you will need to complete this guitar build ready to play. Some parts and stages of the process might be tricky for some people and a bit of a learning curve. Tim has created a video to take you through the stages he went through with tips and insight into what to do.

We hope you enjoy this project, have fun, keep making, and most importantly, stay safe!

Christmas Eve Treat Board | Design&Make

Before you know it Christmas Eve will be here and the little ones will be putting out the treats for Santa. Sure he and his reindeer need the fuel for their long journey, but a nicely presented treat might just help with the Christmas wishes if you know what we mean... wink!

Make the project extra special by personalizing the message to Santa and changing the names making sure he remembers who is on the nice list!

"I was frustrated with the free software, huge learning curve. I’m so glad I found VCarve from Vectric. I especially like the video tutorials, they are easy to follow and build upon my skill set. I even think I’ve developed a slight English accent..... ha ha" Allyn Phillips (Facebook)
