First photo


#1

I love this photo… (my parents)


This is a better picture. You can see the detail is actually there… top picture looks darker than it is


#2

Very cool! What settings did you use? is that PG birch ply?


#3

That was basswood from menards.

Heres the final picture on a $6 piece of live edge basswood from Target. 11" wide by 8" tall.

And put some poly on it to lock it in.

Very nice photo … And nice family keepsake!

I still can’t believe it only took an hour and 19 minutes. I used to use a 2.8w diode laser on my cnc machine and it would have taken 3 to 4 hours to do something this big


#6

Awesome job! I need to check out Menards for material.


#7

Hobby Lobby and sometimes Michael’s have these same live edge planks. (No Menards here :slightly_smiling_face:)


#8

Hmm, the closest Menards is 500 miles away. And I thought the hobby lobby in Braintree was far!


#9

So on top of the general coolness, I love that the knot looks like a ripple in the water!


#10

I got the final large piece of basswood from target


#11

Targets we have!


#12

It was in the craft section near the school/office supply section


#13

you can also find some interesting cheese boards/cutting boards in the kitchen section of target. if you shop there regularly, keep an eye on the clearance end caps. i haven’t etched them yet, but i picked up a couple of 20" long paddle style cutting boards for $10ish each on clearance.

Heres a link that I was directed to from target .com
