Yeah that’s pretty cool. My uncle runs a small laser print shop and I’ve seen some of the pieces he’s done on wood. It’s really amazing the detail you can put onto a piece of wood.

Hi Dick;

Yup, a really nice setup. But like you said, it’s expensive.

I suppose a person could make money with it.

It’s not a printer, it a laser engraver. If you hold one of these in your hands and look closely, there is no ink involved. It burns the wood at different levels to put the “image” in it.

I realized that its not a printer, its a glorified wood burner.
