Thanks for all the nice comments and kudos, guys.
James, my wife is one of nine kids. She wondered if a similar one could be burned for her sibs. Told her no. One of her brothers has 11 offspring and I quit counting his grandkids.
Steve, the tree is a clip art image. I can't draw water.
I think there's a way to speed up the burn process. Just gotta do more research.

Looks good Gene!

I looked in to getting a laser the last 2 years but between probable software issues and the inexpensive lasers I was looking at decided to pass. I figured I would end up throwing my computer and or the laser before I made anything worth showing

Your design is very nice, Gene. Inkscape should get easier once your familiar with the tools that you need.

I suspect it’s working fine . Im comparing an 80 watt co2 laser to a 1 watt diode .
It’s kinda neat how a laser diode can burn though , and it’s probably more dependable than a tube ,as mine has issues and won’t fire or it’s sporadic.
I’m hoping that it’s an issue with the PS , as it would be a cheaper fix .

Keep up the good work Gene

Thanks, Paul. Getting familiar is the rub.

Rick, an Epilog is in my future....as soon as those lottery winnings materialize.

I keep buying them knowing it’s pretty much another tax on the poor lol .
Could hardly imagine the shop I’d have if I hit the big one though.

My first choice in lasers would be Kern though

Is that after the Insulation and CNC??

See Gene, you can teach an old dog new tricks -- even if we don't have a clue what we're doing.

I took the tests and retirement is the best job I'm suited for.

Now I know why old guys wear suspenders.

Well if I win the lotto I was debating to contract out the insulation part . Maybe Iíll get a pic taken of myself installing the last piece for social media
