This Ikea hack video shows to make your own drawer fronts for the Ikea Nordli dresser. The Nordli dresser is very low-profile, and also makes a great media center – I’m actually going to be using my Nordli hack as a combination dresser / media center in my bedroom. This is a DIY woodworking project that can be as easy or as difficult as you want it to be, and use everything from high-tech CNC machines to hand tools. The only limit is your imagination.Read More
I'm excited to announce that I've signed on to start working with Inventables -- the company that makes the X-Carve CNC. I don't own an X-Carve, so I will be using one at my local maker space. Last week, I headed over to the space and carved my first project -- this "create" sign for the shop. To make it, I created SVG files in Affinity Designer, and imported the SVGs into Easel. It was incredibly easy. I highly recommend giving Easel a try -- just play with it and see what designs you come up with. I have a hunch after you do, you'll quickly be looking up your local maker space to figure out how to turn those designs into reality!
I also put together a quick video showing the carving process. This video won't be posted on my YouTube channel, so check it out here!
