The Cricut Maker is so exciting because of all the different materials that it can cut. One of the materials I’m most excited about is basswood so today I’m sharing a round-up of the best Cricut Maker Wood Projects I’ve seen. I hope that it inspires you and helps get your creative juices flowing too!
What do you need for Cricut Wood Projects?
To cut wood you will need a Cricut Maker or Cricut Maker 3. You will also need a knife blade and a strong grip mat. I also recommend that you have some painter’s tape on hand and that you use it to tape down the edges of the wood or veneer to your mat to help prevent it from moving any during cuts. Just run a line of it around the outside edges and that should do the trick.
What kind of wood can you cut?
