I’m trying a new material. This is my first attempt at cutting wood veneers. I know veneers are kind of Laser Cutting 101, but they’re still new for me. My friend Pete is making a flag case for his grandfather’s memorial flag and he wants a portion of it made with inlaid veneers.
We started with this:
Cutting that section went really well.
Cutting the dark wood for the inlays didn’t go so well. My sizing is off and several of the pieces broke. Pete wants little to no space between the pieces, so I need to play with the Expand function in Illustrator to see if I can get a tighter fit. Pete is prepping more veneers for me so I can try again.
