Walnut shotgun stock project


Just started my first engraving on a walnut stock my god I was worried about getting this right !!! I think I spent about 4 hours just making sure alignments, focus and zooms and zaps where correct… phew I was worried lol :rofl:

My glowforge keeps jumping zoom wise when you autofocus… has anyone else noticed this ?? Scared the hell out of me with this project…

I’m sorry, I am not sure what you mean.

That’s the way auto focus works… When it uses the red dot laser to determine the focus distance, the image in the gui is adjusted to correctly show file alignment. You can trigger a manual focus via the “3 dots” icon at the top of the gui.

Hope this helps and welcome to the community!

Next part completed :relaxed:… some metal work done on the glowforge just thought I would keep you updated on the project… to be fair it’s coming to a close there isn’t anything I would want to add to it in fear of overdoing it…

Just showed my husband this. He’s a collector, as is his brother, dad, and late grandparents. He absolutely loves this. Fantastic job! It’s absolutely beautiful work.

Thank you very much for the kind comment! Iam delighted that they like it! :blush: I was very worried that the style wouldn’t be looked on well as it’s so different from the normal scroll work everyone expects. It’s very reassuring to hear from you so thank you very much!! :blush:
