I made these plant markers for our new herb garden. About 8" long by 1" wide on 1/8" birch. I tried a few different looks and ended up liking the letter cut out the best, it’s also the fastest.
They are relatively quick to make and the plants have enough turnaround that I didn’t varnish the wood, we’ll see how long it lasts with the usual watering and all.
Here are my proofs and settings (though as usual do a test on your own material and machine):
- Material: 1/8" Birch plywood - untreated
- Cut: 150/full
- Score: 125/3
- Engrave: 1000/90
I also made a video about the process, check it out here:
