Trees.

I laser engraved quite a few variants on this theme (trees, flowers, etc.) some years back and following requests from friends I am now making a few more (non-commercial) and thought I would share a pic.

Nice work as always Tweakie and surely beats doing it by hand with an iron.

Thanks Rich.

For me CNC removes the need for artistic skills  ;)

Looking good Tweakie.  :)

I think the only requirement for being considered artistic is that you have an imagination and are capable of displaying that imagination to others. You nail it pretty often Tweakie so you can go ahead and put a checkmark in that artistic skills box.
;D If you could see the things I have in my head, you would be laughing too. ;D

Hi Brett,

Thanks for the kind words - I wish it was that simple  :'(

When I see the works of those with true artistic skill I realize my limitation.

Thinking back, the Turner's Cube is perhaps a perfect example of how CNC has helped me. I definitely do not have the skill to make one of those cubes with a lathe (as intended) but by using just two Mach3 Wizard generated toolpaths I have been able to make them with a mill - no skill required (excepting perhaps some knowledge of using Mach3). It is perhaps a similar thing with artistic compilations - I use knowledge (or experience) + CNC in place of skill or talent  ;)
