wooden wine box

Learn how you can produce a handy and solid wine box our of Trotec veneered wood.

Preparation

Required material
  • 1 sheet of Trotec veneer walnut, 3 mm
  • 1 sheet of Trotec veneer birch, 3 mm 
  • Jute yarn for the handle
  • Ev. TroMask masking tape
Used machine
  • Speedy 100

  • 2" lens
  • Honeycomb Tabletop

The wine box can of course also be produced with all other machines of the Speedy laser engravers.

Step by step

Step 1

Design

Import our template and adapt it to your requirements.

Important: 
Our template is designed for a standard 0.75l wine bottle. Check the dimensions of the box and your chosen bottle before cutting the individual parts. Adjust the graphic if necessary. 

In Ruby, split our template into 2 separate designs, one birch and one walnut. This will make them fit the size of the wood panels perfectly.

With "Create job" move the design to the "Prepare" screen. 

Step 2

Laser process

If you want to use masking tape, put it on the wood sheets. This reduces cleaning afterwards. 
Place the job to the desired position in Ruby® and adapt the settings. Put the material into the laser. 
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.

Info: 
Wood is a natural product. It characteristics can vary. We recommend to test the parameters before you produce the work piece.
