Adventures with HD Ply: Going Fishin'


#1

Early 20th century woodcut adapted for 21st century burnination…


Home Depot birch ply (non-Baltic)


#2

The detail is insane!


#3

Another knock out engraving. Just drooling for the opportunity to try my hand at this :glowforge::sunglasses:


#4

Thanks! This was a quick test to see if I should invest more time on prep. The new project is definitely a go. Will post final products when complete.


#5

Wow! Great results, particularly with plain ole HD ply. Great project, can’t wait to see it progress.


#6

Wow. What is the thickness of the ply and what settings did you use? This is amazing! Did you use masking? :grinning::glowforge::blush:


#7

Amazing work! So what sort of file did you use to create that? Was it a raster image of just fine black lines?


#8

Nothing fancy, just used the PG setting for medium engrave for 1/4" maple ply. :wink:

Hastily cropped jpeg converted to a png. Will take much more care on the final project.


#9

That looks pretty good! How much is the wood where you’re at? How big a piece


#10

4’ x 2’ of 1/4" runs $12. I have them rip it into four 12’ strips, then trim the final 4" at home with a Dremel Saw-Pro.

Fantastic!
