I was at Costco yesterday, and they had a pack of cedar grilling planks for sale for $9. There were, I think, 8 pieces in the pack. Each was about 6" by 12", about 1/4" thick. I can’t find them online, so I can’t post a link.
Any thought on if this would be a good material to work with? I was thinking it might be good to make some puzzles.
Yes but put two in so they form a level surface - each one is tapered but if you place them so the opposing ends are together they are generally level across. If you just toss one in, one end is going to be closer to the lens than the other and the results won’t be the same as a real flat & level surface.
disclaimer: This is reviving an old thread, but it helped me so it’s worth a bump…
Headed over to score some after a 3D engrave search and reading these posts.
Great stuff and really a nice, cheap solution if you are thinking about experimenting with deep engraving. (save the expensive stuff for when it counts).
Lot of variation in thickness from various brands, so I advise looking at them before grabbing a handful.
I used the Hickory, worked well.
