All neat stuff Doc. I thought I'd said as much on this thread somewhere but I guess not. I'll have to share some of my own stuff with the Ortur Laser Master 1 (I think), which is a cheap Chinese version you mentioned earlier. I've been really enjoying learning and using this thing. I'm using LightBurn, which seems to be the go-to software for at least the less expensive models. I'd love to find some better software but I haven't dug too deep into it yet as I still have much to learn about it's current capabilities.

This is just a little hexagon stack I made by cutting what I think was 3mm plywood. I made another out of circles that I glued together and it looks neat, but I didn't take a picture. 



 

Keychains! My first attempt with keychains, they didn't look cool enough, so I made more. 



 

Second attempt (kind of... The trial and error part of lasering has caused me to redo two of the below). These still need a little sanding and finishing.



 

A backhoe! I cut three of these and glued them together to make a keychain for my backhoe. 



 

I've got a buddy who's daughter is a big Harry Potter fan and he asked me to make him something out of some Beech (I think) and it turned out really well. That wood is lovely!



 

Just a couple random designs, posted on a different thread.



 

These, also posted in a different thread, were my first real attempts at doing anything with the laser. This is on a piece of pressboard (though I don't know if that's what it's really called, it's like cardboard pulped up and glued together) that sits on top of my workbench.

that stem and grape image, is from a picture of one of his clusters at harvest.  he will also make a large photo for the wall of his tasting area.

They look great.  In most houses it's dad can I borrow the car, but at Doc's it's dad can I borrow the laser. Up here we have many wineries and most cary the logos over into the wine racks and signage so I bet your  daughter will be busy for a long time.
