So I have been having fun with my laser engraver (see previous posts). Every year at work we do a white elephant gift exchange. I work with Marines so some years half of the gifts are some form of alcohol. SO I thought it would be fun to slip a dummy round in the bunch. I started doing it a couple of years ago with my CNC engraver, but the laser engraver actually does a better job. I had some 3X3 white oak that I made the Snake Oil and EWS (where I work) Whiskey bottles from. The Gentleman Jack is a mini bottle from scrap cherry. There are online templates for making booze bottle labels (of course there are).

Well done. Wish I was there to have a chance to get it. Will make a great gift.
