Large Drill Bit Holder

Post by jointhebeagle » Tue Oct 04, 2016 12:14 am

Made this out of oak. The font is called CNC Vector and I really like it.

After the milling was complete I spray painted it and sanded off the top to create the deep blue lettering. Unfortunately, some of the paint drew into the wood too far, which I figured was going to happen but oh well.

Really nice font and work..

I heard it was a trick to put on some laquer first, before painting the letters, so the paint won't be sucked into the wood.
Have not tried it myself yet..
