« Part 7: Jim Beam anyone? Part 8 of Lasers in woodworking. series no next part

I have a commission to build two perspex sneeze guards for a friend, Dave..

He and his partner run a Stall at the markets making Zagyoza… Japanese Dumplings.

They sent a file to engrave on the front… this is the sample to see how it would look.

.And while I had the machine on… some signs… just teasers… not finished yet…
With a close up of Capt. Caveman…
Gotta love that laser….

More to follow…

Very cool, if you put LED lights on the edge it will make the engraving light up. Have fun!

You produce great results with the laser but that would never work for me. I tried for over 6 months to figure out how to operate sketchup on the computer and finally gave up and deleted it. If ssomeone ever come up with a laser machine that will let me put on a helmet that will transfer my thoughts and ideas to the machine..well, I would probably buy one.
