By: John Garcia | Date Posted: October 10, 2022

Today, the design world is full of possibilities that seemed completely out of reach just a few decades back. Thanks to their incredible versatility of CNC machines, they can be used in various home improvements projects such as furniture, decorative elements for interior and exterior, or tools and decor pieces that simultaneously serve practical purposes.

Everyone can use a CNC mill service to make their design dreams come true. In most cases, you need to find a suitable project and a company that will help you turn it into reality. You can look for ideas on platforms such as Pinterest or browse magazines and websites dedicated to home design to find inspiration or, if you’ve got the right skills, take a piece of paper and sketch what’s on your mind.

Don’t worry if you’re unsure where to start, though. This article will introduce you to 4 easy and effortlessly beautiful CBD projects that will instantly give your house a more exotic and chic look. They range from privacy screens to welcome signs, coasters, and bookends. Check them out!

Privacy Screen

Privacy Screen

With the help of a CNC machine, you can create any pattern you want, but if you’re going for a look that’s both exotic and elegant, you should definitely take a closer look at patterns that feature flowers and leaves. For instance, you can go for a design consisting of large and lush flowers and monstera or palm leaves.

A privacy screen of this kind can be milled in wood or metal – the exact choice of material depends on your personal preferences and the place where you intend to use it. For instance, if you installed some double-glazed flat roof windows and live in an area with higher buildings around it, you may need a privacy screen to cover the inside view from said window. In this case, you will probably keep the screen inside, so you can go for wood and don’t really have to worry about choosing a weather-resistant material.

However, if you plan to use the screen to add some privacy to your porch or the area near your main door, you may want to either opt for metal or find wood that’s most suitable for outdoor projects. These woods include acacia, cedar, cypress, and black locust. Don’t worry if you don’t look like the natural look of these woods – you can always use a wood stain to change their color.

Decorative Signs

Whether you’re a simple person who wants to add some life to your walls or someone who loves welcoming their guests even before they walk through the door, CNC-milled signs are a great option.

If you’re looking for something subtle, a small sign featuring your favorite inspiring quote or even a single word may do the trick. However, if you want something that will make a bold statement, you can opt for a larger sign that features a trendy pattern of your choice.

Few things can make your house look chic and stylish than a beautiful sign with your family name or the name of the street you live on. If you want to add a touch of luxury to your home, you can have a sign milled in brass or another precious metal. Alternatively, you can look more rustic and mill the sign in wood.

Again, you can choose from various shapes, sizes, and designs, but remember to think about where the sign will be installed and how it should look to match the space. For instance, a sign with a flowery or leafy pattern will look great in a hallway or a bathroom, while a geometric one, created using CNC turning parts, may be a better fit for a more modern kitchen.


If you love reading books or simply enjoy buying them and have an extensive collection that you’d like to display more interestingly, you may want to incorporate bookends into your decor. Not only will they look great on bookcases, shelves, and other surfaces, but they will also prove to be extra practical.

If you decide to go for CNC-milled bookends, you should choose a material that’s durable enough so that it won’t get bent by the weight of the books. For instance, metal pieces will most probably hold the weight just right. The second thing you need to think about is the design. You can opt for geometrical patterns or take your favorite book characters as an inspiration for your bookends.



Coasters are another great option if you want to add something interesting to your interiors and simultaneously be able to use them in your everyday life. As coasters are usually used to protect the surface of a desk, table, or shelf from water damage, they don’t have to be high-tech pieces of art and can be pretty simple in design.

However, if you’re looking for something that doesn’t look like a simple mass-produced coaster, you can use a CNC machine to cut out any shape or design you want. It’s perfectly possible to create a flower-shaped coaster or even include a tiger or a toucan silhouette. Don’t worry about being limited by material choices, too. You can use CNC mill cork, wood, metal, or epoxy resin.

In Conclusion

A CNC machine is a powerful tool that can be used for various things, including home improvement projects. If you’re into the idea of creating beautiful and exotic pieces of art that will also serve practical purposes, you can always opt for a CNC machine.

Whether you go for coasters, privacy screens, signs, or bookends, think about where you intend to use them to find a design that will match the space. Don’t be afraid to look for inspiration online and experiment with different ideas until you find something that fits your needs and preferences.
