Has anyone had any experience with engraving or reproducing photographs onto wood? Contacted a few local engravers but all they do are sports placques etc. Would like to put a picture of my grandaughter on the front of a chest I am building for her.

Appreciate any suggestions.

I have seen this done with laser engravers. They do a really nice job. You will need to find someone who has that capability. If you go to www.epiloglaser.com you will see examples of pictures engraved into wood. They really are nice.

I take all my work to trophy shops. The only problem is the size of their lasers. If my boards are too big, they can’t do it. Other than that, I don’t see why they can’t. Unless there is special software needed to do photos.
