Started in the last few days… engraving from Photographs onto wood…
First is a dog pic download from the net… engraved on plywood and framed with Jarrah…
Second is a commission… and the first engraving ever
.... of a landscape of Milne Bay…. on Huon Pine…
Third is my third Number One grandson, on ply… no frame yet…
Fourth is first attempt at a car pic… a little light on….
Fifth is same as the fourth, a little darker.
Last is for the horse lovers out there…
Having lots of fun learning… not bad for a beginner…
The following are screen shots from CorelDraw and LaserCut 5.3

and here is the finished landscape…

Those works are great, it is always fun to try something new. That keeps your brain working.


-- Bob, Western Australia, The Sun came up this morning, what a great start to the day. Now it's up to me to make it even better. I've cut this piece of wood 4 times and it's still too damn short.

The detail is amazing. Does the engraver have the ability to adjust the clarity of the picture? How long does it take per picture?

They are all nice including your cute little grandson Larry, but you get extra high marks on the horse portrait which I think is very arty.

Which engraver are you using? How expensive is it? What other tools does one need other than the engraver?

This is giving me all kinds of ideas. Thanks for sharing. I look forward to your responses.

Great stuff. I like it and like others, I am curious for details about your equipment. One caution, is be sure that pix downloaded from the net, have the rights available for you to use. You probably know this already and were careful to be sure it was a legal usage, but this note is as much for the others that will check it out in case they don’t know. Keep up the nice work!

I think Larry is referring to his laser engraver and not a carving tool.

Is that right?

Do you mean you put all those dotsyour self, by hand using an engraver, or did you down load the picture into a electronic laser/CNC and the machine “print” out the picture on wood?
