We were sent an X-Carve machine from Inventables to review. All thoughts and opinions are ours alone.
We’ve got another X-Carve tutorial for you today. This is one that Steve dreamed up, and it turned out even better than we imagined! It’s a nativity carved into a piece of acrylic, then set in a wooden stand that includes a strip of LED lights.
Here’s the supply list:
- 4×6 3/8 inch thick acrylic
- 1 inch thick 1.5 inch wide, 7.5 inches long wood for the base (we used Koa–a beautiful wood from Hawaii)
- LED Strip Lights Kit
- 1/16 inch carbide two-flute downcut endmill (available on ebay) to carve the acrylic
- wood glue
- spray lacquer
And here’s the end results with the lights on. Isn’t it so pretty! We’d love to hear what you think!

That is so gorgeous! How creative you two are- and such a cool machine!
