I have someone looking to have these boxes and usb’s custom engraved for her wedding customers. I haven’t done anything yet on Walnut, and was hoping someone would be able to give me some advice on what settings to use for a product like this.
I’ve been cutting a lot of walnut lately and the PG walnut ply settings work fine. I haven’t done any engraving yet, but there are plans. I’ll post with results when I get to that phase of the project.
Yeah I was impressed with it. Unfortunately the vendor I got it from was not very responsive nor cared much about the quality of their ‘finish sanded ready to use’ product. I don’t think @ChristyM ever got her order. I have a drum sander on the way so if I catch it on sale again I might consider getting more, but it was definitely not the finished product they described. They blamed it on a new person cutting the wood for the deep gouge marks as if that person had nothing to do with their company/reputation.
Yeah them… They really had a chance to find a great market for their wood but dropped the ball in so many ways. I understand getting a lot of orders you didn’t expect and could not handle it but they went so far to dig as deep of a hole as they could. Had they just owned up and said sorry…
i think mahogany is a lot like walnut in that there are a lot of subspecies and it’s grown in very different regions/climates. i think both of those things could easily affect hardness and how dark the engraves are.
I use the same walnut usb keys from Amazon, although without the box. the usb keys are very popular with my friends, I’m currently running out of my 4th batch of 10. I have several different designs for them too.
