Not sure if anyone has tried this, or maybe has some better ideas…
I’ve been making some business card holders like the one pictured here in koa and purpleheart. I am in the Navy (submariner) and was thinking of having a set of “dolphins” – the submariner’s insignia – laser engraved, then filled with silver (or gold for officers) inlace metal powder (probably set in white inlace).
Some concerns: Cost – the inlace is fairly expensive. Wood thickness and depth of engraving – the wood is only 1/8” thick, so the depth of engraving couldn’t be more than about 1/16”. Is this deep enough to hold the inlace?
Thoughts? Any ideas would be great!
