One note that I am noticing about slate. It does not like to etch cold.
It is 45*F here now but was snowing yesterday. I tried two pieces and it was either very light or just didn't etch.

I WAS etching successfully a few days ago when is was 60-70*F.

Gotta love the Midwest

so here is what they looked like just before they went into the gift bag.  I saw someone else does these boxes with a lid.  I may try that.  You just make another box a bit bigger.  You also need to put something decorative on the lid, instead of a lame hole like i have in the bottom piece.

I might make those cool avengers coasters and do the avengers "A" on the lid.... or not be fancy and just write "coasters"

how do you engrave and the outline in the same job?

T2Laser, using Sketch Plus you can add the multi-pass cutting to the engraving job.
