    Imma burn stuff and engrave stuff just cuz I can. :etm:

    I've had it for a few weeks now and it's pretty damn fun to play with. (That's what she said)

    The first day I had it I engraved Schmoops bald head and tried my woodworking business card. The results were ok, but kinda blurry.

    I was in the middle of an order for a baseball pen that required adding a Detroit Tiger's "D" decal. I asked if the customer would rather have it engraved and the answer was a definite yes.

    I made this for my mother. After 7 minutes of trying to explain to her how the laser did the work, I gave up and just took credit for everything.

    This is what I'm probably going to do a lot of. This was for a pen set going to a music fan. It has his monogram and I then added the music details per his request.

    The prices vary. From around $40 and up. It all depends on the materials and difficulty.

    Here's my Etsy store if you get bored enough to look.

    I made this just for fun, but it showed me I need to watch out for jointed boards. The bottom half of the guitar is on a different piece of wood. Everything from the seam down looks different.

    That design was a hand drawn logo (not by me) that I had to turn into a vector image. I can do photographs as well, but the only examples I have right now are family members, and I'm sure as hell not posting those here.:jj:

    This is a closeup of the last pic:

    Thank you kindly.:hat:

    I just realized I have about 30 pens finished I need to photograph and list. :suicide:

    I enjoy making them, but taking the photos and writing them up is like watching someone watch paint dry.
