I was engraving some thicker objects that were too thick to place on the honeycomb. After a couple of successes with using random objects as risers, I decided to get all scientific on it.
After measuring a riser surface height of 1.362", I created three boxes; one full height riser and two that are below the normal honeycomb height by fixed amounts.
Now ? If I measure a material thickness greater than 0.5", I just grab a riser, subtract the amount shown on the side from the material’s thickness and use that as the thickness. Remove the honeycomb, plop the material onto the riser directly in the GF, and happy engraving!
These were cut from 3mm Baltic Birch plywood. The kerf is tight enough that no glue is needed (0.122" thickness).
