Inlaid Acrylic Banana plate

Inlaid acrylic plate made with 3mm non PG acrylic. Monkey macarons not made on a Glowforge :blush:. I added some intentional grooves and texture to give the bananas a little dimension. I polished the plate on my bench grinder with a wheel and some compound plus the use of a stainless brush to soften the deeper grooves. Still looking for a better finishing solution, but for a first try I’m pretty happy!

I’m pretty much a functional, no frills or bling kind of guy. But every once and a while I see a project like this and it brings joy to my heart.

Monkey macaroons on a banana plate. All home made. Worth the price of admission here!

That is the cutest! I can’t even make regular macarons look nice, much less fancy monkey ones.
