Playing with felt. 15th project


#1

Some coasters for home.

All comments really appreciated


#2

Nifty! :grinning:


#3

Look neat.
Curious. How does that felt hold up to dampness?

I wonder what would seal that material? Maybe the leather sealers?
Sort of a spray on - tap flat - let dry thing.


#4

This felt works very good but and extra layer of a cork sheet can be added


#5

Great looking design


#6

what settings did you use? did you hold it down with magnets in the tray? they look great


#7

That looks like real wool felt. Very nice.


#8

He felt the felt felt like wool.
(There was absolutely no reason for me to type that sentence, but how often do you get the opportunity to use the word felt three times in a seven word sentence?) :smile:


#9

He felt the pelt felt like felt.

(Twice, apparently.) :face_with_raised_eyebrow:

For 5mm Felt this are the settings in a Glowforge Pro

CUT
Speed: 250
Power:77 - 80

Engrave

Speed 200
Power 18

Felt gets burned really fast, but at the same time it cools down really fast ,so when you cut , the fan of the Glowforge helps with the cooldown of the material. you might need a cutter for some minor cuts

Thanks

Felt is actually a great material for coasters. It’s been used forever in bavarian biergartens, the traditional coaster is called bierfilzl. Semi-absorbent materials like felt are nice because your glass doesn’t stick to the coaster when you pick it up.
