Very cool. That could open up an entire new line of signs to sell.

Nice, Larry.

If I was doing that (small chance, I can’t come close to buying a laser engraver) I’d try to use wood with light color and low grain color contrast to increase readability.
Here in the US there are a number of light colored, fine grained woods that would be attractive and enhance the color of the graphics burned in.
You’re leading the way to the future, sir!

Nice diplomas Larry, there are so many things that can be done with a laser I know mine has become indispensible around the shop.

Looks fantastic!

I don’t know anything about CNC machines, never even seen one in person.
So I can’t comment on the woodworking aspect of it, but the result looks first class.
Your client will surely be amazed and pleased!

And I thought you were Boardologist Larry. It looks like paper is going out of style now that the laser engraver has arrived.
