There’s something out there that I’ve always wanted to try, and that’s 3D laser engraving. I just like the look of the 3D effect, and couldn’t live with myself any longer without trying it. I had heard that creating the files to do this are not all that easy… and whoever said it was absolutely right. It was a challenge that sort of took on a life of its own.
After maybe a dozen attempts, and many rejects thrown in the trash, I finally managed to turn out something I liked. My wood was not thick enough to get as deep as I’d have liked, but the effect turned out pretty good anyway.
I thank my pal from Los Angeles for allowing me to experiment with a logo belonging to one of her customers, and I dutifully packaged up the result to send her. That way, I can move a project that would sit forever on my desk to now sit forever on hers. A great way to clean house. Send it to someone else!
