Been making more stuff lately and learning what does and doesn’t work for my workflow. Especially experimenting with acrylic.
Been having some issues with trace registration and alignment which looking through the forum seems to be an outstanding issue still.
Also, working on some custom stuff for my upcoming sister-in-law’s wedding, still in the design phase as they had very vague ideas. It will be a lighter wood with some kind of self standing plaque that people can sign and an insert with darker wood and artwork incorporating 囍 ("double happiness/joy, they’re Taiwanese). Been testing various ideas out on other stuff with an end to that.
In no particular order:
Copy of a piece of artwork I liked, done in the Haida style. The proofgrade wood is a joy to work with.
I’ll be doing some more in this style, likely with some red acrylic inlays.
T-Rex skeleton for my dinosaur obsessed older son. Being able to move the individual pieces in the GFUI to make the best use of the material was very useful.
Artwork of my favorite band. This will likely be edge lit at some point in the future.
Testing clear acrylic with a back engrave and filling with paint, in this case a glow-in-the dark paint.This will likely end up either a Christmas ornament or go in the car, haven’t decided yet.
