    Thanks, Mike. This thread intrigues me. I'll have to play with the graphic some when I get home. I do know that while I have had great success with the contour tool for some things, depending on...

    I've used on any wood that I felt like I didn't get a good enough contrast, although I have never tried it on plywood. You understand correctly in that the gel stain settles into the fresh "grooves"...

    I also have a friend that makes holsters out of this material. I wouldn't engrave this with a laser, period. What you might be able to do is to make him a stamp that would leave a mark in the...

    I've used both Ogee and roundover bits on the CNC. I fully concur with the guys about NOT using bits with the bearings. Most of the time however, I just use my router table. I find it simpler and...

    Thanks, Stan. Actual time on the machine was negligible. What ate me up was two things: getting clean vectors from the customer supplied logo (I used mostly Corel X5) and the font she picked at to...

    You should be pleased with it, Nicolas. Nice work! I've done some scales with the laser, but never tried it with the CNC. Did you use gray scale artwork?
