Also in the Spring, a community member that I met at the Wayne County Home & Garden Show owns a woodworking business and expressed interest in laser engraving his products. He creates handsome “layered wood” shot glass serving boards among other things. Corel DRAW was used to import and cleanup a restaurant logo, converting a low resolution graphic into smooth, high-detail vector art. As you can see, the lasered result looks beautiful!
In the second photo, the blue painter’s tape on the board prevents heated, charred wood particles from settling and binding to the wood during the lasering process. A jig was made to ensure that each non-square serving board was accurately placed for consistent results.
