Engraving on Wood With my KNK Force and the Rotary Tool

Wood Carving Decor

I have been playing with my KNK Force as well as Rotary Tool. I have never carved on wood before. This was my first time and I can tell you, personally,  that it was much easier than what I thought it would be. At the start i was quite intimidated by this project, but through out this project I’ve gained the confidence to face any project of this media! So don’t be intimidated; give it a try :)! This is not perfect but I am more than happy with the results, because I know that I can practice more to get results that i am satisfied with, lol. I wanted to try engraving my cousins name, Daisy, in wood. For this I used the Rotary Tool in my Force. I bought the wood I used in Walmart for $1.00, and the stand in Dollar Tree for a $1.00 as well!

If you want more inspiration to do your own projects, follow KNK Force on Facebook!

Wood Engraved


The materials that I used for this project were:

Settings for KNK Force:

The settings used for the Red Blade:

  • Passes = 1
  • CD = 187
  • CS =  10
  • US = 10
  • PS = 10
  • LS = Default – 20


Please, READ all the safety instructions before you commence working with the Rotary Tool.

  1. I measured the wood with a caliper to see what recommendation the Rotary Tool Online Calculator would give me. But because I would not be cutting the wood completely, I just used the recommendations as a guideline.
  2. I taped the wood to the mat and placed it in my machine.
  3. Then, with the Rotary Tool unplugged I added it to my machine
  4. I Followed these instructions: 7.07.2 Inserting the Rotary Tool into the Adaptor
  5. After that, I plugged in the Rotary tool and put it to work.
  6. In C3, I already had my project ready to start carving, so I put it to work as well.

Here there is a short video of my Machine doing part of it works.

HAPPY 4th of July!!!

  1. It turned out great Omayra. And the $1 plaques from Wal-Mart and Michaels are a great way to inexpensively practice.
