Brilliant work Larry
excellent detail in both the image and the timber grain.

I see they are military people so what’s the story behind the award?

That is a great result, all I need now is a laser. + all the other things on my wish list.
Shows that anything is possible.

Thanks for showing.

Hey Larry – as you are playing with it, do you find that you get better results if you laser engrave wood that already has the finish on it?
Or do you burn the raw wood then lacquer the panel later

Unbelievable what you can (or should I say what you are) doing with a laser engraver. Very nicely done.
