Looks like they have a nice variety of substrates to try! Thanks for the link.


#22

I really like how the slate engraves. Maybe make some trivets? Get a larger piece, maybe slightly thicker and then throw some rubber feet/bumpers on the bottom. Trivet!


#23

I was disappointed to find out that Michael’s didn’t have any other slate than some coasters…but, thought the price on the Amazon ones weren’t that bad.


#24

I ordered a set last night. (The cheese boards.) :slightly_smiling_face:


#25

Planning to do a LOT of slate, but not buying any slate until at least :glowforge: is on the way.


#26

:+1:


#27

These turned out lovely!


#28

Love the slate engrave, what were the settings you used?


#29

I thought it was chocolate :smile:

Those turned out great! But I would expect nothing less than perfect from you by now :stuck_out_tongue_winking_eye:


#32

Oh crap! I can’t live up to that! ROFL! :smile:


#33

I’m sure I’ll do the V8 forehead slap, but what is this?

edit; duh…first pass? Love the new language that’s forming here…all because of a laser. Not just ANY laser, mind you.


#34

Focal Point. Sorry! :grin:


#35

Do you have another nearby you could call? I have 3 within my normal shopping radius and only the one near my office carries slate, but they carry 5-6 different platter / wall plaque sizes in addition to the coasters. All $2.99 or under, all branded ArtMinds. Some of them are available online: http://bit.ly/2thFgdf


#36

Do you have a Re-Store near you? The one up here has all shapes and sizes of pieces of slate.


#37

I’ve got 2 not too far away. I thought of getting some materials there, but never thought of slate.


#38

We don’t have a Re-anything near here! Very small town. Joking aside, there might be one somewhere 30 min. from here, but really not worth the drive for me. Thanks for the suggestion, though!


#39

No…probably only Portland…way too far to bother with. Ah, the trade offs for living in a small town. Thanks for the suggestions.


#40

Worth a lot if the drive nets you a ton of slate for little. I wouldn’t expect that necessarily, though.
