Trying to do a better job of posting more often. I did a few more laser-engraved projects as they seem to go pretty fast once you have the artwork done. One of my friends has a nano-brewery and calls upon me to do graphics work (in exchange for some of the magic elixir). Thought I’d make a few fun bottle openers that we can put on the walls if he ever gets to the point of adding a tasting room for his customers. I’m thinking the Tiki ones would be good for outside use as they would probably weather to a beautiful color. The owl’s beak just looked like a bottle opener to me. I’m also a big fan of Poe so that one will probably end up in my den. A very simple project (Who can’t cut a board to length? And if it isn’t exactly 14” who’s going to care?).
Any suggestions for future versions are welcomed!

They are a lot of fun to make, fairly inexpensive, and people just love when they get a gift like this! I keep looking for pictures that lend themselves to the process…
