In this episode I’m exploring a new (to me) technique for embossing / debossing / engraving onto wood. I show how to make complex patterns, simple patterns, logos and more. I’m really happy with the way this came out, and definitely plan on implementing this technique into some future projects.

    Nice project but do you think this guy is sponsored or something!!!

  2. ccgsales on April 12, 2023 at 8:25 am

    Have you ever thought of making a ‘positive’ and ‘negative’ of the cnc routed shape, apply and heat the wrap, then ‘press’ the two pieces together to ’emboss’ with cleaner edges? That would seem much quicker than hand pressing and using a credit card to press into the nooks and crannies.

    Youtube just stopped recommending your videos to me. The last Video I saw was months ago. Today I just thought "Hmm, does Chris still make videos?" and searched for you on my own. Activating the bell now…

  5. Николай Русанов on April 12, 2023 at 8:33 am

    Dude, I like your videos! But please, shave your beard…it’s not for you. Keep the good work.

    The only thing I missed in the video was a Colgate ad.

  13. Heretik Leathercraft on April 12, 2023 at 8:41 am

    Hm. I’m doing a kind of this in leathercrafting, so it’s pretty familiar for me 🙂

  14. Josh Costa on April 12, 2023 at 8:42 am

    That vinyl will hold up fine. I’ve had my garage cabinet doors wrapped for several years now just like you did it, with no signs of peeling. Still looks better than paint! I’m loving you creativity with the embossed idea!

  15. Bruno Silva on April 12, 2023 at 8:42 am

    Was that maple? What finish did you use? I have some leftover maple, an end table would be a great use for it

  16. noochmahh on April 12, 2023 at 8:43 am

    Check out "car audio fabrication" youtube channel. He has tons of videos demonstrating how to do what you are doing at a more experienced level. Great work. I Just subscribed to your channel.

  17. Dazlaa on April 12, 2023 at 8:43 am

    Your build has a cool war of the worlds kinda vibe to it or a squidee from the matrix

  18. stephanvg on April 12, 2023 at 8:45 am

    Haha, it’s nice technique, but it’s basically like watching a TV-shop channel at this point

  19. Chäõbæ Nõønë Ôòß on April 12, 2023 at 8:51 am

    So amazing & listening to your voiceover is so therapeutic !

  20. tm on April 12, 2023 at 8:52 am

    I like your video, but I don’t like your clickbait title.

  21. Ray Campbell on April 12, 2023 at 8:53 am

    Cool design. Curious—(just watched your finishing video you released today). Would putting on some kind of clear coat preserve the vinyl coating and save the edges? Also, have you thought about using carbon fiber in any of your designs? And lastly, what inspires you to do your next project? Do you surf Pinterest? Do you wander Abbott Kinney in Venice? Hmm?

  22. роман карнацкий on April 12, 2023 at 8:53 am

    Good day, please tell me the name of the film, or a link to the site. I would like to find something similar in Russia. Thank you, sincerely.

  23. Darvaish on April 12, 2023 at 8:54 am

    Nice work

    Awesome as always

  26. FunDumbMental on April 12, 2023 at 8:58 am

    I can’t argue with it looking nice.

    I wonder if some high density cilicone roller would help with the pressing. Or vacuum sealer

  27. Rick Pitcher on April 12, 2023 at 9:01 am

    Sheesh was gonna subscribe but the sponsorship stuff is excessive

  28. Chads Custom Creations on April 12, 2023 at 9:02 am

    Anyone else go back where he says he likes surprises and it goes black… What are you hiding there Chris I couldn’t find it.

  29. B Kashyap on April 12, 2023 at 9:04 am

    Hey Chris, I’ve been following you for quiet some time and you are an inspiration.. I recently cam across this website http://www.alankaram.in , man I was blown away with such intricate furnitures.. you should check it out…

    You need your Uncle Jim to read the commercials.

  31. Elliot Stokes on April 12, 2023 at 9:06 am

    Nice, I have been interested in this since you mentioned the idea on the podcast some time ago

  32. Nick Porter on April 12, 2023 at 9:08 am

    This is genius and I love love love the Kieth Haring pattern 😍. Thank you so much for sharing. I’m definitely going to do this with paper cut on my laser. I think you can also get custom patterns from the cricut. A little T-spline edge banding might be the perfect way to protect the laminate. Cheers!

    depending on what quality of vinyl you use cast / calendered they are labeled to hold up 5 till 9 years outside on advertising signs. important is to heat the vinyl up especially on uneven surfaces.
    sometimes they advertise some types of vinyl specifically for furniture but the ones I bought didn’t feel different than calendered vinyl there may be a difference in the adhesive but I am not sure about that. sometimes it’s hard to tell even the brand they are selling.
    as someone that did some vinyl wrapping with thicker materials, the V-Cut still works great! consider to leave it long enough so you can get it on to the back as well.

  37. L C on April 12, 2023 at 9:12 am

    This looks great. Do you have plans for this side table? Can’t find them on your website.

  38. Mike P on April 12, 2023 at 9:12 am

    The biggest think I learned in this video is that my scrap bin is way too close to my table saw

  39. Sam Wilkinson on April 12, 2023 at 9:13 am

    Classic foureyes 👌

  40. Romelia Polly on April 12, 2023 at 9:13 am

    I started with Stodoys plans.

  41. Andrew Hua on April 12, 2023 at 9:13 am

    Woah, I just noticed you are using a Hitachi router! Just got one myself, and it works so well. Absolutely steal at $100. I just wish it came with a edge guide fence.

  42. NicoleHerrickDIY on April 12, 2023 at 9:13 am


  43. Goku on April 12, 2023 at 9:14 am

    You can use "Edge Sealer" which will lock the edges of the vinyl down.

  44. Derek Olander on April 12, 2023 at 9:15 am

    I like your solution for not allowing a drawer to be accidentally pulled out. As a second option, and maybe even easier, what I’ve done in the past is to use a hinge screwed to the top with the other leg dangling down. Gravity always works in your favor, you simply push the hinge up to pull the drawer out. Also then when you put the drawer back in, the catch mechanism always "resets" itself once the back of the drawer passes by the hinge leg that is hanging down.

  45. Oggybobo on April 12, 2023 at 9:16 am

    Chris – I would be ecstatic to own a side table like this, absolute perfection.

  46. DrTurtleBee on April 12, 2023 at 9:19 am

    I little cheaper than an x-carve is a cricut or silouette paper cutting machine if all you need is cardstock thickness.

  47. Hellen Smith on April 12, 2023 at 9:22 am

    I feel you all pains on the rippers I’ve had good luck with getting dumps from Cardsteve on telegram, he’s one of the few that didn’t block me after I sent him btc

  48. Stephen Zumbach on April 12, 2023 at 9:22 am

    So just an idea, but instead of using a CnC for your designs, you could buy a Cricut machine

    Conceptually like a CNC, but on a small scale, and designed to work with a drag knives and vinylidene

  49. Larry Miceli on April 12, 2023 at 9:23 am

    And those are called hypocycloids
