Some of my latest work
« on: November 21, 2019, 08:39:07 PM »

Hello all, it's been a long time since I posted anything, but I've been working harder than ever to learn this thing that is laser engraving and cutting.  I've recently purchased a "new to me" Epilog 30w CO2 laser and have been busily learning its quirks, along with Corel Draw and now Photoshop.  Plus, I retired from my regular job at the end of September (and went back to work part time) so I do have some more time to work on my laser.

I just finished up my first craft show last weekend, and I did pretty well considering how small the show was.  The other vendors were impressed with what I had, and I had traffic the whole show.  Managed to sell quite a few items, although the ones I thought would go quickly didn't move at all.  You just never know I guess.

Anyway, I'm posting a link below to a dropbox folder where I store all of my finished projects.  Feel free to browse around! Ask questions if you have any.

Thanks!

Nice work Dale, and I agree with you about never knowing what items will sell.

I gave up the day jobs and made almost $200US last year selling laser etched coasters. Spent approx $1000 on supplies and tools, 2000 hours on images, 100 hours etching. Can't do the math but Bill Gates probably made more than me.

I expected the Texas Home and Texas Welcome signs to sell, as well as the Feliz Navidad sign, but it didn't seem that anyone even looked a them.  However, the miniature nativity scenes went fast, as did the nativity crosses.  Some of the earrings sold as did a few of the ornaments.  People were pretty impressed by the light weight of the wooden earrings.  The two Happy Holidays wreaths sold to the same person, and a few of the pencil boxes sold.
