Soon to be my Daughter's Last Name

Engraved on a 4" travertine tile, and painted before weeding.

They will be spending the holiday at his parents home in Boston, and I thought a set of these would be a nice gift. Backed with cork.

Funny, I like that name better than my own. :face_with_raised_eyebrow:

@Xabbess, Thanks but the laser does the work now. I just stand there with a stupid grin on my face.
The travertine engraves well, but a bit dusty.
If you want to go deep, you need to pause between runs and scratch out the engraving with a tool and vac it out because the air assist builds up ‘drifts’ of limestone or ash in the design that blocks the beam.

Thank you…great tip. At least travertine doesn’t have resin in it like wood, which really sticks to everything inside.

Et oui…how could you not like a French name that just rolls off the tongue like that?

I have run a few with some favorite quotes also. With multiple passes you can get really nice depth. I didn’t expect that a 40w laser could affect softer stone like that!
A startling surprise. Exploring materials has been a great joy!
