VERY NICE!!,
As another builder of displays I am envious.
How did you do the emblem?

P.S. How did you make the coin slots…I’m using a DeWalt biscuit jointer…works great for me and the slots are just the right size.

PASs, I own a laser engraver. I love it, love it, love it!!! It’s an Epilog model. Got it back in 2007. You can get a much better deal on them today though. The technology has matured so there’s greater competition and since the economy hasn’t been the best, prices on them are oustanding. I’m thinking of upgrading to the next larger model. I have the 12×24, 40 watt system. The 18×24, 50 watt system cost about 25% less than what I paid for my 12×24…...

You can see other stuff I’ve done on my webiste: www.spjcrafts.com

Made the slots just running the boards over the table saw and adusting by 1/16 to widen the slot a bit. As you can see, I need to clean my blade because there are burn marks from the caked on pitch on my blade, LOL.

Nice project, I’ve looked at the lasers for a while now. I’d love to read a review and your thoughts on owning and using one.

PebbleCreek, the laser is an awesome tool. Does more than just wood. You’re only limited by your imagination.

The machine has no consumables so no supplies to buy!!! It works just as good today as when I bought it in 2007.

Epilog is based in Colorado, be wary of the imports….No experience with them but, from my foxhole, I can see some issues. Plus, it’s better to to get stuff made in the Good Ole USA!
