Step 1: Carve It

Use easel to generate gcode for this design by opening it here: https://www.inventables.com/projects/easy-bevel-design

I used a 90 degree v-bit for this project to get that beveled edge.

Step 2: Paint It

Nothing left to do other than paint it! Just took a can of paint I had lying around and dipped it as far as the tree would go.

    Such a cute idea! The outcome really is interesting... Maybe you could paint the whole thing and decorate it, too! Yeah, that'd look so cool... Great job!
