Got my teal acrylic in yesterday, and went to fill that logo…
I had reversed the file to cut from the back so the taper would mirror the cut in the box, but I wanted it tighter. There is a neat tool in Inkscape, ‘Dynamic Offset’…
The guides were placed so I could see the difference.
“Just the tool I need” I thought. Problem was I made it virtually the same size, so I thought I would push it in with my vice. Little voice on my shoulder said “Don’t do it”. Well, I did it - and both the acrylic and maple ply suffered.
It’s OK, the whole box is just for scrap and was a learning project, and yeah, I took a lesson. So it’s a bit rough around the edges, just like me.
Moral is Listen to that little voice.
“The sage is guided by what he feels rather than what he sees.”
