Laser Cut Farmhouse Wood Sign
I made this adorable Farmhouse tier tray sign using the XTool d1 laser cutter/engraver I purchased from my Amazon Store.
I have been playing around with it for a couple of weeks now and have finally figured out enough to show you what it can do.
I found this free laser cut file and thought it would be perfect.
I played around with the settings until the laser cut through the wood.
You can find the machine and the wood I used in my Amazon store.
Once the cut was complete, I began removing all the cuts.
I used an Exacto knife in the areas where the wood wasn't cut completely.
I was a little too rough with the thin wood, and as you can see, the small word farmhouse in the center broke.
But don't worry, I was able to repair it, and you would never know that it broke.
I used some Gorilla Glue Clear Grip and a toothpick.
I placed a small dab of glue on edge and held it in place for a moment.
I recently found this glue, and I have to say I love it. It doesn't set up as quickly as hot glue, so it gives you a moment to get everything in line and has a better hold than hot glue.
This is my go-to blue for projects like this.
I wanted the wood grain to show, so I used some Alcohol markers I found in my stash.
Once I had the frame painted, I applied glue around the edges and attached it to the back piece.
For the larger word, I used a white paint pen. I wanted it to pop against the natural wood and painted the smaller word with a dark alcohol marker.
For the smaller word, I used a darker alcohol marker.
I attached the words to the frame using more of the Gorilla glue.
And once I had everything in place, I had this fantastic piece for a tier tray or shelf.
