An unexpected project that popped up last week gave me the opportunity to do some laser engraving with my Atomstack A5, so I’m finding it quite useful. Can’t cut anything thicker than mountboard but not bad for a wee budget number. Here’s an engraved Poodles dressed as a robber pig as another wee experiment. He is a character I made for an illustrated kids’ story I created well over a decade ago - Poodles and Pigsticks go to the Moon. I keep meaning to put it up on my website. . #propmaking #laserengraving #atomstack #laserengraver #making #illustration #pig #poodlespig #robber #robberpig #poodlestherobberpig #poodlesandpigsticks #poodlesandpigsticksgotothemoon

Enclosure with fan complete so been working out how to use the damn thing today. Been having fun with paper and engraving plywood and no fires as yet.👍👍👍 Even Buddy got his makeover to a weathered brass.

Been making a box. Taking me far longer than it should but I’m in no rush. It’s an enclosure for my small laser engraver that I bought over a year ago. I haven’t used it properly yet…because it needed an enclosure…soooo… Need to cut a few holes for cables and extraction fan amongst other things but also need to decide what colour to paint it. Black on the inside but outside can be anything. Will need to think about it. Might have a go at some paint techniques as it’s not something I’m confident or much practiced in. I also needed a handle to open the front and remembered I made a snake skull drawer pull ages ago that I didn’t do anything with so thought that’ll do the job. Think I might go gold with that wee guy. He deserves to be bling! Swipe to see him close up… Maybe the rest of it should be inspired by snake skull guy.🤔 Industrial Gothic anyone??
