Diego from engravers dungeon has developed an incredible technique for laser cutting that really makes their designs stand out. The colours are painted on before engraving but the secret sauce lies in the two tone style of engraving, something that they are understandably keen not to share. The whole thing is finished off with a mixture of wax and varnish to make a nice piece that I would be happy to own.
I make no bones about it, this is some high class engraving even if I am trying to be humerus.
Another post from the laser cutting group now, Jocelyn has shared these Christmas letters and is currently working to complete the set. I hadn't realised how early people start working towards Christmas craft faires until I started reading these groups but I guess it makes sense.
I'll keep you posted as to when the rest of the set it released assuming they letter do it amidst all the requests.
The glowforge forums are soon to be a hotbed of inspiration while people figure out how to use their new laser cutters and this free design is a great place to start. The cathedral wine box is an iteration of a previous design and it would make for an amazing gift.
You'll need to make sure you red white down to the bottom of the article to find the svg files. What more reisling do you need to make one?
