This months contest was designed to include as many people as we possibly could by focusing on a simple but useful project that can get as complex as your imagination: The Beverage Coaster. This project will be a solid project for the CNC beginner, but with some time and effort a full blown CNC enthusiast could create some really cool projects. Be sure to let your imagination run wild, a coaster does not always have to be round - maybe not even flat. What would someone find interesting on a coaster? What about storage?
What we judge:
•Complexity of the Design (1-5)
•“Cool” Factor (1-5)
•Quality of Cut (1-5)
•Bonus points for storage solutions
