Plywood coasters with simple holder


#1

For anyone who wants to whip up some coasters quickly, I figured I’d share this. This file is for a simple coaster holder with an example coaster included, set up so you can plop in whatever you’d like to engrave and just go. The holder is sized to hold 4 coasters.

The holder walls just fit snugly into the base. This is sized specifically for :proofgrade: medium maple plywood.

Here’s some pictures:

Engrave settings pictured are either:

Speed: 500
Power: 30
LPI: 270

OR

Speed: 1000
Power: 60
LPI: 270

If you’d like the MSU files, just let me know :slight_smile:

Well, thank you very much! It’s a lovely design.

There is probably a simple answer to this but it eludes me.
When I get the svg file listed above on my browser, how do I import it into Inkscape?


#5

In Windows you just right click the mouse and “Save As”


#6

Right click on the link and “save as”, as mentioned, or you may be able to just hit ctrl+s (or go to File -> Save) when you click the link and see it in the browser.

That works on Mac also. Thank you.

Awesome…

even though … GO DUCKS! :wink: (next year!)

Very nice, thank you!

Well, just an update - I noticed that some newer :proofgrade: Maple plywood is thinner than previous pieces have been (ever so slightly - hopefully this is to make it the same thickness as the other plywoods), so the file I shared may end up with slots that are too loose for you.

Huh! Missed this one. Very nice! :grinning:


#12

I had to narrow the slots as mentioned.
