Seeing so many projects made on a GF around here had me itching to get something made, so here’s my first post (I normally would never post, but this community is so friendly and welcoming so I thought I’d give it a try). A couple of my friends had some babies, so I decided to make them some name signs. I hand drew their names and luckily knew someone that could laser cut it for me at a reasonable rate.
From the pictures, you can’t really tell, but I guess I was a bit heavy-handed with the spray paint which resulted in some clots, and I was wondering if anyone knew any better ways to get a more even coat of paint, because it was hard to get the sides sprayed smoothly.
Also, if you’ve ever lasered MDF before, is there a way to get rid of that burnt smell and charcoal besides sanding the edges? It’s been a couple of days and I did some light sanding but the smell is still lingering.
These were made on a 30W Epilog laser cutter and my friend said it was pushing the limits of what his laser cutter could do and took two passes. After getting these signs made, I’ve gotten even more excited for the GF. July can’t come soon enough!
Thanks for looking
