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

Who We Are

Operation Ward 57 Challenge Coin Display Project

We are a woodworking community with an emphasis on sharing and learning the skilled craft of woodworking and all of its related disciplines. Our community is open to everyone who wishes to join us. We support our American veterans and active duty, being a veteran is not a prerequisite to join. Join us now!

Objective

Air Force Command Center Plaque

Of course just like most online woodworking communities we are centralized in the arts, crafts, and trades that are woodworking. But, we have another focus in our Patriot Woodworker community, we are the only woodworking community that was founded on our care and concern for our disabled veterans.

Volunteer

Patriot Woodworker Volunteers

The Patriot Woodworkers are an all volunteer community, from the staff and hosts who run our online woodworking community to the members who frequent our forums, you'll find volunteers in all of us. We are not on a payroll, unless you consider the spiritual rewards gained from volunteering, as compensation.

Education

Logging

One of the many projects we are working on is a wiki for our online community. A wiki is a great way for woodworkers and enthusiasts to share their knowledge to others, and to impart their knowledge for others to learn from, and utilize as well for their own benefit. We hope you'll consider being a wiki contributor.
