Modern fruit bowl from solid wood

In this step-by-step tutorial we show you how you can create a moden and funky fruit bowl using your Trotec laser and Trotec's solid wood material. The parts fit together without the need for glue.

Preparation

Required Material
Used machine
  • Speedy 360, 80 Watts with 2.0" lens
  • Aluminum cutting grid table

The fruit bowl can of course also be produced with all other machines of the Speedy laser engravers or SP laser cutters.

Important

Cover the working area completely with paper. By doing this even slightly bent sheets get flat.

Step 1

Import design

Import the design template and adapt it to your requirements if needed. Then click on"Create Job" to move the design to the "Prepare Screen" 

Info: Wood is a natural product. Its characteristics may vary. Therefore, we recommend to test the parameters before you actually produce the work piece.

Step 2

Laser process

Place the job now to the desired position and adapt the settings. The laser parameters may vary depending on the type of laser machine and available laser power. Send the job to the "Queue" for Laser processing.

Post-processing

Clean the parts while they are still in the machine and the vacuum is on. By doing this you can efficiently wipe over the complete surface. Sort the different parts and put them together. 

Tip: Mark the front of the single pieces with adhesive tape so that you can assemble the pieces correctly.

Inspirations

  • Use two different shades of wood and mix the parts during assembly.
  • Personalise the bowls by adding an engraving design or a name to the pieces. You can produce the bowls in advance and then add your customer's individual engraving afterwards.
