Sweeeet! :sunglasses:


#3

Time to start cutting into my local Canadian shield…

Awesome job!

I got to extra marble countertops from my old job for free. If they don’t end as my outdoor kitchen counters, they are ending up in my forge .


#4

Was that engraved just straight on the marble, or did you have to pre-treat it with something like cermark?


#5

Now I want to make a cheese logo stamper out of marble, so when people come over for wine, cheese, and boardgame night I can have absurd things stamped into it! haha


#6

As is. Dropped in and pressed the button.


#7

I was just watching the latest episode of This Old House and they went to a marble quarry and I was thinking that this would be fun to try! Thanks for trying this!


#8

Outstanding!


#9

That is so cool! I haven’t tried marble - did it just discolor, or did it remove material?


#10

Granted, I’m just guessing, but zooming no in on the photo it actually looks like it took a layer off…if that’s true I wonder what multiple passes might do? :smile:


#11

how big is it?


#12

Its ~ the width of the glowforge head. (~4.5in)


looks like my guess was a bit off. 3.75 as mentioned below. oops


#13

Nice!


#14

Awesome! That opens up the field of engravable objects even more!


#15

Awesome! I was very tempted to buy some clearance marble cutting boards the other day, now I might have to go back.


#16

To be honest, I had thought this topic was referring to something else :stuck_out_tongue_winking_eye:


#17

Now this is totally awesome…add>>>Todo.


#18

#19

Removal. I’ll grab my depth gauge later and get a measurement.
