Tried my hand on this 3d engraving

After seeing the post of the engravings on round boxes that now I cant find…heres my experimmt on Puduk. This was great until I tried a third pass on a super low power and burned thru the bottom. I’m full of human errors…haha. Any who …now I know. But that detail…so good!!

you just need to use a jewelers saw, or scalpel, to open up a few other low points, and pretend that you meant to do it that way :smile:

I did the Lion head in paduk and is my favorite for this sort of engraving, It is one of few woods that you can actually cut half inch material without it becoming a black mess,

Very cool! :sunglasses:
The master carvers spent the time with the tool, we spend a fraction of that on the file, then just push a button, and stand in awe.
I agree with @rbtdanforth, that should be salvaged!
