So first project of the night:
Tomorrow we are going over my cousin’s house nearby, and the highlight of their house, is when they renovated it they installed a ginormous dual fired pizza oven (required massive steel supports and a crane to get it into the house through a huge hole in the kitchen outside wall). Anyway, I thought a sign would be nice:
Solid proofgrade maple. Set it all up as 2 levels of engrave, a score and finally a cut.
So first attempt was a pretty spectacular failure. It started off for the cut on the top right corner rounded the corner, paused and then continued on without lasing… (sorry didn’t have my phone out for the first 10 seconds). Then halted all together and turned the button purple…
OK, so I waited a few moments. Nothing happened, so like any good tech person, I rebooted. It recalibrate, and reported ready for duty.
Fired up the same job, and bam, this came out so crisp and clean. At first I thought the dark engrave was too dark, but after weeding just looks sweet. This piece of maple has some interesting ripples in the grain, but the surface is smooth, it just looks like there are bumps
Nothing particularly complex, but it’s a nice gift when coming over to dinner, and way better than a bottle of wine they don’t need!
