It's a Wood Book!

So aside from lasering, I like writing, and thought Hey, maybe I should combine the two! So I took a poem I’d written, scratched out some illustrations for it, scanned them in using the trace function, and lasered away! It’s called “Down to the Woods” and here’s a peak at a couple pages for you guys! (Disclaimer: It gets slightly dark, think Edward Gorey-esque).

I used cherry wood paper from Trotec for this.

And a general thank you to literally everyone on this forum - I’d be lost without your posts, so THANK YOU!!

Very nice project highlighting two of your talents. I had not heard of cherry wood paper, so there is another new thing to look at.
