So this project actually started out as a joke and then turned into a real life finished product. Last week I was playing Catan with friends in PA online. While playing one friend asked me if it was possible to even make bookends and I said sure it is. Well while we were playing in between turns I had AI open and worked on making a joke bookend of the circle game which is their Discord icon.
Everyone got a laugh out of it, but then I started to think, well I’ve went this far what’s just a few more quick steps?! A few turns later and I had the file designed out and ready to upload.
After I cut it I realized my layout neglected 1/8" on the tabs because I didn’t mate it up in the design, so I had to cut one additional layer. In the end that worked in my favor because it added just a little more weight.
I used Ohua markers to “stain” the draft board, and if you use the chisel edge you can get a woodgrain effect in my opinion.
