I remember you did post some in-progress pictures.  Those turned out fantastic.  Amazing how crisp and clear the letters are.  They do look like a lot of tedious work.

Fantastic! Seems like we need an artistry category, above woodworking, for a lot of these projects. They are just stunning, looks like they should be in an adventure movie like Indiana Jones, or the like.

Fantastic Steve. IMO these will rival any electronic gadget out there plus no batteries or charge time required.:lol:

These will surpass the life of those digital gizmos too...love the way you personalized and signed these.

Well done...you're an awesome grandpa!

Steve you either do not have anything to do or have the patience of Job. What an amazing project to hand down and I think the great grands will love them too.

Amazing how that technology is available to us.  Wonderful world we live in.  To bad we can't reprogram humans to work that well with each other as we do machines.

this computer/woodworking tool interface baffles me.

 

as i've noted before, if you gave me a CNC machine (like the ones that Rockler sells), i'd stare at it, kick it, turn it on, and would be stumped in how to make it do what i want it to do.

 

guess i'll stick with hand work.

Dab, the important thing is, don't over think it. A cnc machine or this little laser is just a tool like any other. A cnc allows a person to make repetitive cuts just like setting the fence on your table saw allows a person to cut boards to the same width every time. In some cases, like my laser, it allows a person to do something better or neater than they could otherwise do. Just like any other tool, there is also a learning curve and accumulated skill involved when using one. Nothing comes without putting forth the effort to bring it.

 

Steve
