Here is a fun little project I did in honor of the new Star Wars movie. I found this stencil on the internet and brought it into Inkscape. I used the Trace Bitmap tool and saved the SVG. I imported it into Easel and cut it out. I did a shallow cut of 1/16″. It took about an hour to cut, but I had my feed rates set pretty conservatively. Once it was finished, I sanded it to get rid of the fuzzier. I painted the inside with black craft paint. Once dry, I sanded the top again to remove the black paint from the top, but the paint remains in the recesses. With an air compressor, I blew out the saw dust, then framed it. I might go back and paint the Storm Trooper white and add a clear coat.
This was a quick and easy project that makes for a really cool wall decoration for my Geek Cave.
