Nice. A spectrum of offerings. :sunglasses: Those should work nicely.

These came out great. Did you buy a premade notebook or did you make your own?

Thanks! Just the covers for this notebook. I got a dozen of these notebooks from a work vendor for free. So, for these, I didn’t have to cut or punch the paper.

That’s a nice freebie!

I love all this stuff. Does it mean you get a special “bat phone” line for any forge related fires? ( *** just kidding *** )

That would be great, except I’m in Wisconsin and this fire department is in South Carolina, so the response might be a tad bit slow!

All really great items! Good job. You got a great result with the dry moly.

@pubultrastar this question may get this bumped to Beyond the Settings but I’m really curious how you did the coasters. Great job overall, everything looks awesome!

There’s lots of good info on engraving on slate over in Beyond the Manual – try this search: https://community.glowforge.com/search?q=slate%20settings%20%23beyond-the-manual

It looks like he used the “lacquer first” tip, which works really nicely!

I put a couple of coats of Shellac on the slate before putting in the :glowforge:.
