New Carvey Projects You Have to See!

If you haven’t checked out our newest projects, you’re missin’ out big time! The four beautiful projects showcased below were made on Carvey, and to say the least, they crushed it! And if you want to hear even more good news, all of these projects can be made by any and all makers...that means you!

This gorgeous desktop planter may look a little intimidating, but have no fear, it’s all made in Easel! First mill out the Corian base and stand because that is what holds this whole project together….pretty cool, right? Next come the walls. The walls of the planter are made by carving rings into maple wood using of course Easel, as well as, the “offsetter” app found in the Easel library. Once the walls have been cut, simply glue them together, sand them down and boom! You got yourself one beautiful desktop planter all co-workers would be jealous of.

Need something to keep your kids entertained for hours in the car? Well have no fear, activity bot is here! This adorable little guy is made with four different colors of MDF wood and Easel, allowing any parent with a Carvey to recreate him! The body, eyes and gears are all made by simply changing the depth of which you carve into the wood for that particular part of the robot. This is what allows activity bot to be a fun and customizable toy. And the best part of all? No batteries!

Not sure how to make a bowl shape with Carvey? No worries, Inventables has got you covered! This stunning bamboo dish was made with a combination of CAM software, as well as, Easel. But the wonderful designers over at Beyond Design added the files into Easel, so now any maker can recreate it! Once you download the Easel files, you first mill the inside curve of the dish, then the outer shape. If you’re looking for a little extra non-slip security, use cork to cut out a pad to attach to the bottom of the Corian base. Now just like that, you have a beautiful dish to fill with candies, clips or anything else you find around the house!

You may have seen this awesome (and educational) Food Chain Puzzle on our website and thought, “four layers, I can’t make that?” Oh but yes you can! All you need is four different colors of MDF, a Carvey and a little one you want to teach who eats who in the world…or maybe just call it the circle of life? Either way, the puzzle pieces are designed around geometric shapes, which allows for each piece to neatly and precisely rest inside the previous piece. To begin start by carving out the largest piece of the puzzle. Then the next largest, then the next and you get the picture. This technique allows you to create inlays inside the previous piece, which will create the stacking food chain effect. Once the chain is complete, you can take a step back and confidently say, “yes, I did do it!”
