CNC Engraving

CNC engraving is used to route a pattern through the veneer layers of plywood.

This type of decoration is achieved by setting a V-cutter to cut various depths. By doing so the V-cutter routes different line widths.

“Un-Upholstered chair” by Courtney Skott 2004 (above) using one line width.

“Shelfy” by The Summer Office 2006 (below) using three line widths.

  1. The Un-upholstered Chair was actually made by “tracing” a set of 5 plywood templates with a laminate trim router. I didn’t have access to a CNC at the time — would have been easier, for sure!
