But you DO have a CNC, improvise! I was asked to make a plug to go into the end of this boat prop so the plug can be engraved with the boat name. An older couple sold their large boat to a younger man and they told him of all the times they went on 3 and 4 day trips out into the Gulf off the coast of Louisiana and took their kids and grandkids.

Because the new owner planned some upgrades, including newer props, he thought it would be a nice gesture to have a Walnut plug put into one prop and give it to the older couple as a sentimental keepsake.

So I cut the plug on the CNC and now just have to shoot some lacquer on it so the laser shop can engrave the boat name. They'll epoxy it into place.

Not worthy of a video but an odd request, for me anyway, so I figured I'd share it with y'all.

Yes sir, it is. This was really hardly worth posting but I thought it was cool little project so I decided to share it with y'all. And it was neat that it fit perfectly - I liked that part. :wink:

The laser shop sent me a photo of the finished boat prop with the Walnut plug I cut. They used their new color machine to match the colors and artwork of the boat name. The boat owner was ecstatic, so on to the next project!
