So, I wake up this morning and go out to my shop to find it all messed up (as if that was possible). Some darn wood elves had modified my Cnc and carved this plaque. I must admit my machine works like a demon now. I guess i’ll Need to figure out how to frame it and lock my shop better.

Elves are usually much more considerate about tidying up. Are you sure it wasn’t Dwarfs? And of course we know that certain Hobbits tend to be a bit messy (those darned Tooks). But only Orcs would leave that Eye of Sauron lying around. LOL

Great job, thanks for sharing.

Filling the “engraving” with some ebony wood filler (and sanded of course) would make that detail really pop.

Could even colourise some neutral filler for special affects..

Just my 0.36c worth.

Thanks for the tips Little Black Duck. I might try that. I’ve looked at a lot of posts about paintinting and filling and yours is the best advice i’ve Seen so far.

My Veritas Honing Guide (actually most of my laser projects) gives a good example of the results… Just ensure you engrave deep enough so when you sand off the filler, tou don’t bottom out… especially in larger areas of indentation.
