Added a glowforge touch to my gift for my father. I used 5mm underlayment, I got an uneven color in the engrave so I sprayed a little black to darken. Then I sanded the top layer and removed the darker wood layer and found a knot. Not what I planned, but still made it work.
Instead of engraving the metal on a bottle opener, I glued two pieces of proofgrade cherry onto a steel bottle opener.
Here it is all put together.
The font being so close to the root beer label was coincidence.
