    Cut each letter out twice from standard 3/4 material and then glue them together?

    How do you mount on another board? And this would have tabs?

    He is saying to cut out two of the letters and glue them together after you cut them out.

    There are several ways. The best is to use screws that will not interfere with the tracking, that are not in any area where a bit will cut and that are level with the surface. Another way is to use double sided tape but the good tape that holds the best will raise the board slightly. Some temporary glues may work also but I've never tried them.

    From your question it sounds as though you don't completely understand the process. Essentially, all you are doing is securing two boards together to achieve an overall thickness that the machine can use. For simplicity, both boards should be the same size. Then only the top board is carved on and the bottom board is just to hold the top board in place. If you are using the Cut Path tool to cut out a part or pattern, the tabs will automatically be used to hold the carving on the top board in place as it finishes.

    I wrote a Tips & Tricks showing how to cut "whatever you want" out of thin material (.25"-thick wood in this case). It is a simple process. Here is a link to the tutorial pdf:
