Learn how to create this stunning flower swing using our high-quality and incredibly popular Solid Wood.
- 1 sheet solid wood alder, 0.5mm
- Covering material
By carefully arranging the design, this application will enable you to create two flower swings from the one sheet of Solid Wood 300mm x 600mm.
You can use the template we have provided and modify it to suit your needs. The design file is customised for 5mm thick material. Should you wish to adapt the design to suit thicker materials, simply edit the template elements.
Print the file to Job Control using the following parameters.
|Process Mode||Resolution||Cut Line:|
|Colour||Enhanced Geometries, |
Inner Geometries first
Note: Use 333dpi resolution to achieve fast engraving with minimal processing time.
Position the solid wood on the working table and cover the remaining area in order to increase vacuum. Print to JobControl and begin engraving and cutting the wood. You can also engrave the back of the material if you want both sides of the wood to match. To do so, simply flip the cut-out shapes and place them back in the same position with the back side facing up. Repeat the engraving section of the job only.
The parameters may need to be adjusted in order to suit your laser machine and available laser power.

To assemble your design, simply insert the two parts of the swing into one another and then place the circular support plate on top. You can use a ribbon or some decorative string to hang the flower swing in place. Finally, add a plant or flower of your choice and watch your creation come to life!

- This application can be created using solid wood or MDF. Be sure to adjust the notches for the joins when selecting MDF.
- To achieve a vibrant flower swing, we recommend combining different varities of solid wood.
- If you wish to paint the flower swing to create a unique look, we suggest using MDF as opposed to solid wood.
