Tried a small cutout with border — definitely going to have to work on the contrast and lightening up of the raster artwork. Then I tried my first inlay — walnut veneer into medium hard maple plywood. Of course, I had to work small and with a pretty complex shape (weeding off the backing from the 3M adhesive on the back is a bear), but I think it turned out pretty well. Definitely need to make a second pass on the engraving step to get the veneer flush with the surface.
Oh cool dragon!
Left is before the tutorial, right is after. I need to get rid of that bit of glow, but otherwise I’m pretty happy.
Well, thanks for the Matrix. Although, when we get to the movie level of “The Matrix,” I don’t think anybody will be thanking you. That’s a couple generations off, though.
That’s pretty much how I looked after putting it together too.
That turned out awesome. IMHO the glow looks great (feature, not a bug).
Excellent – thank you.
