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.
The Spring Blossom Wreath project will proclaim glad tidings of Spring and the warmer weather it brings! The wreath features Zinnias, Pansies, Petunias and various leaves arranged together around the ring.
The project sample was carved on standard 0.75 " thick stock, but you can use thicker stock (for example, 1" thick), if desired. If you do use thicker stock, you can make the wreath component thicker, as will be appropriate for the material thickness you use. Be sure to enter your new material thickness dimensions and calculate fresh toolpaths in Aspire as required.
The finished wreath is about 16" dia. x 0.75" thick
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 email@example.com.
