Nice work!

How deep does the laser actually burn? Looks like only a few thou?

Well done. I wonder if they will ever develop a color laser? If they do, I would bet that you will be one of the first to have one.

I don’t know about this stuff…
... I think the Original Picture is a farce… it has too much color contrast for the Maple to show… But it turned out OK! :)

Your software is probably very smart making contrast adjustments.

Very good job! ... as usual… LOL

Color can be done with multi layer plastics (not wood as yet) and multiple “lasering” masks for the different colors. Much like how a dye sublimation printer works.

By the way Larry beautiful as usual!

It’s amazing just what can be done with a laser these days.
Great job.


-- Bob, Western Australia, The Sun came up this morning, what a great start to the day. Now it's up to me to make it even better. I've cut this piece of wood 4 times and it's still too damn short.

Cool! One question: if you oil or finish it would it be too dark? Or would it enhance the picture? I don’t recall you finishing your laser items. ..
