How to Laser Cut a Custom Watch Face From Real Maple Wood Vaneer

Instructions, and SVG file.

I wanted to make a wooden version of my Open Watch. I joined my local makerspace the Curious Forge. That way I could use the laser cutter to print out my watch face. Freshums was kind enough to help me out with the project. Later I went home and installed our first prototype into a watch. photo above.

Guide

1. Join your local makerspace.

2. Purchase or cut wood veneer. I purchased this: http://amzn.to/2BFGzTP

3. Get certified on the laser cutter.

4. Copy the SVG below onto a USB drive.

5. Set up laser cutter with your veneer.

6. Import SVG into LaserCAD, and Print.

80W CO2 Laser Cutter Settings:

Cut (Red) = Power Speed

 

Cut after Engrave (Black):

Cut = Power Speed; Engrave = Power Speed;

 

Thank you Freshums and the Curious Forge!
