The list of potential uses for cnc machinery in the home and small business shop is limited only by creativity. Furniture and carved signs are obvious choices. How about custom stamps? Why not?

My friend Ben has designed a few business cards for me. We got the idea that it might be fun to make stamps out of them instead of having them printed. So with the vector art and a cheap 45 degree v-bit we employed a Shopbot buddy to do the carving.


We were happy with the results in both linoleum and wood. The 7pt font may have been a stretch and a better engraving bit will help with the detail as well. All in all a successful proof of concept.
