Very nice, that design really stands out in the timber engravings.

the 2.5" hardwood ones look fantastic!
making boxes, machines, fancy 3d objects… all that is awesome, and I hope to do all of it. Expanding horizons.
But my original, primary dream for the glowforge is being able to make ‘permanent’ prints from from my art. Not on archival paper, not on vinyl, but on wood. You just made me really happy.

Nice. There’s an optical illusion going on in the last couple photos that makes the image look spherical.

I knew you had something great in your desktop when you took this picture :stuck_out_tongue:

But they look much better than what I imagined :open_mouth: :grin:

These look amazing! I love the depth of the engrave on the hardwood and still maintained the fine lines. In the last photo, how long did that take to engrave?

Wow that is crazy fine detail. It looks like some of those really fine lines are .25 - .5 point maybe, I’m intrigued. Very nice indeed.
