Letterpress Print Block Mirror

I’m Michael Tyler and for more than 8 years I have been creating Vectric’s Free monthly projects. I’ve made everything from spring wreaths and mantle clocks, to snow sledges and cheeseboards.

Did you know there are already more than 80 projects free for Vectric customers to take advantage of and we’re working on more every month? Each zipped project includes the files relating to the project as well as a comprehensive PDF guide that covers all the key steps help you complete your project - including tips on materials, tooling and finishes. Since 2018 free projects also come with their own video that tells the story of the project from start to finish.

Letterpress Print Block Mirror

For the first month of 2015 Michael Tyler has created yet another great free project that will definately add style to any home.

Drawing inspiration from early printing presses and wooden relief type, this project simulates a random grouping of old-style print blocks in a mirror frame. The varying depths of the “blocks” gives the illusion that they are separate parts. This project goes through many different toolpathing techniques, with plenty of tool changes/swaps along the way - making it a good exercise to start the year with.

Compatible with Aspire 4.5 & VCarve Pro 7.5 or higher.

The finished dimensions of this project are approximately 1.875 " x 19" x 19 "

If you go ahead and create this project, then it would be great to see a photo of your finished piece over on the Vectric Forum. Alternatively feel free to email us a picture of your finished piece at online@vectric.com.
