Flask with gift box

This is a birthday gift for a friend. A little rough, but I think it came out pretty good for a first attempt! The box is cherry plywood with Howard Feed-n-Wax conditioner applied. The flask is powder-coated stainless steel engraved at 500/100 @ 450 lpi.

Next time, I think I’ll increase the speed on the flask engraving slightly; some of the details are not as crisp as I would like. I still need to polish up a few details and glue the light sensor in place, but all in all, I’m pleased with the result.

Almost forgot: thanks to @evansd2, @eflyguy, and @jules for your sealing guidance the other day! Worked beautifully.

Super nice job! That Skippy’s Roadkill must be a really special potion.

That’s pretty coo! It is a very appropriate tune for the box opening.

What audio chip did you use for the song recording…I want to make something similar for my friend who is getting married. Looking on Amazon there are a lot to choose from.

Hi James,
I used these very cheap chips which I had lying around. The sound quality is pretty tinny, but making a resonator out of the box improved the quality to a surprising degree!

Just saw this and WOW! Holy wow! This looks GREAT. I am new to glowforge and wanted some tips on engraving flasks and saw this - the whole presentation is great!

When you did your flask did you have to hold it down at all? With any kind of heat tape or anything? I get concerned it will flop around once the laser starts.
