Guitar Ornament for the Maker Tree Project

Joe Krcma from the Joe Makes channel on YouTube is 3D printing a huge Maker Tree.  He asked that makers from all over the world submit ornaments for the tree, which will be given to The Kids Network.  I thought it would be fun to make a miniature guitar ornament, so I designed one for the CNC machine.  Check out my project video below, then click here to watch the playlist for the Maker Tree project.


This guitar ornament is made from red cedar.  I traced an image of the guitar in Microsoft Visio.  Then I exported it as an SVG file and imported that into the Inventables Easel software.  I clicked on each object and set the depth of cut to add dimensions, then I sent it to the X-Carve CNC Machine to bring the guitar to life.  I glued on a piece of brown material for a strap.  Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays!
