Love making with my glowforge. We started experimenting with plaques yesterday. Have any of you figured out how to mitigate or hide the gaps between wood layers?
I would probably use CA glue and laminate the layers to close the gaps. I have also used brown or black Sharpies on edges. Also, the cuts have a bevel to them due to the shape of the beam, so sanding them square after gluing and then coloring them dark would probably give the best result.
Nice looking project.
You could cover the edges with something flexible, like veneer or ribbon.
Thanks. I actually ended up coloring in with sharpie and it looks pretty good.
I was gonna say, they make all kinds of fancy markers for touching up wood furniture and floors. The right Sharpie sounds like a great alternative.
