Workshop sign for nephew's anniversary

I’m having fun combining the strengths of Glowforge, CNC and 3D Printing. For this project I designed the piece in Illustrator, cut the base on a CNC using VCarve Pro and used the Glowforge to cut the engraved panels out of Proof Grade maple plywood. I liked the precision that the Glowforge enabled on the carbide teeth detail in particular. I used Loctite Power Grab to secure the panels and CA glue and activator to secure the teeth. When engraving the script, I forgot to combine the paths in Illustrator, which left artifacts where the letters joined each other. I was able to re-engrave with corrected art with no problem as I had not moved the board.

It’s the only buzz saw blade that hangs on a wall that I really like. Outstanding job!

Fantastic work and love the detail of the wood combination.

Excellent work leaving your board in place so that you could update the artwork!
