When I need to take a break from regular work, I experiment with designs on the laser. Today I made a bunch of coasters including a few with the Titan Alarms logo on them (one of my clients).
My favorite 2 are the thick acrylic and the maple wood engravings.
The acrylic is even cooler in person. The acrylic is the 1/4” thick Proofgrade and it feels so good and substantial. The Tulsa skyline and the background of the Titan logo is transparent and the rest is engraved to give it great contrast - and of course it was on done backwards on the back so the top is beautiful and smooth.
The maple one is cool for different reasons because it has so much contrast and a natural wood feel to it.
The other coaster are a variety of vector patterns I had in my stock images collection.
I so love creating things with this machine! By far the most time is still spent in Photoshop/Illustrator dreaming, creating, correcting, but it’s still a ton of fun.
