If you're providing nested sheets, please supply them within a single file. Separate layers for each machine operation type is preferred but not essential. We can draw up and program files as per your specifications, a dimensioned sketch is often enough for simple jobs.

Tooling guide

  • The smallest cutter that can through-cut 18mm stock is 4mm diameter.
  • Most OpenDesk products are cut with an 8mm dia compression cutter on 12-24mm thick stock.
  • 6mm stock we commonly use 4-6mm diameter cutters.
  • Max stock thickness for engraving ~80mm.
  • Max stock thickness for through cutting 50-60mm.

Deciding on a budget is tricky and we completely understand! All we can say is, it's incredibly helpful if you can have at least a rough budget ready to discuss with us. This can save a great deal of time and help us design and specify a result that is more likely to succeed, and fit your purpose.

If you have no experience commissioning custom furniture and really don't know where to start with budget, or design... that's absolutely fine, we can help you determine a starting range.

One thing that can help, is looking through the prices of some of our standard products, determining a budget base-point. From there, assume that custom stuff will always be a bit more, because of the design time and the simple fact that making one-off pieces is more time-consuming than product we can repeat develop a process for.
