First attempt at photo engrave on acrylic

Title pretty much says it all haha. Made a wood and acrylic ornament ('tis the season right?) of our 13 year old Shih Tzu. Need to fiddle with the settings, as is par for the course I think, but honestly, I like it. Not too bad for a first go, and the wife loved it, so, I guess that’s all that matters :slight_smile:

Looks great! I can’t wait to start working with my new Glowforge and experimenting using photos.

Detail is impressive. Did you engrave it all on wood and cover in acrylic or did you engrave acrylic? Thanks for sharing. Nice piece.

Hey there, sorry for the super late response. I actually engraved the acrylic. Then made a wooden “frame” to hold it in :slight_smile:

Any chance you could share your process and settings? I want to make one of my dog that recently passed away.
