That is really cool. I don't care that you didn't carve it, it is still awesome.

The whole thing looks great. I was just really taken aback by the engraving.

Holy Hell! That is outright AWESOME! If'n somebody, say another leather worker, was wanting a design lasered... how much would you charge for something like that?

Thank you! I am charging 135 for this book, but this will be something i will reproduce so the computer work on this image is already done. Im still pondering on what to charge someone for a personal image work. This photo took hrs of photoshop work to get it to come out right.

I bet it did. I've done stuff like that making masks for video and green screen rotoscoping. About my least favorite thing to do.

I really have no pattern right now. But that is just too cool NOT to want to do one. Knowing what you likely need to do for your machine, when I find something I really want, I can do some of the grunt work and save you the headache.

Very cool design mate! You've inspired me, I'll have to try and challenge you ;)

My laser bed is only 200x300, one of the $500 40W jobs from ebay. I normally just use it to cut out stencils for airbrushing or cutting acrylic or MDF templates, etc.

What size bed and what power of laser are you using?

No, from me. It seems like everybody has a laser except me. I even heard about a guy who has freakin sharks with freakin lasers on their heads...

Hahahaha, I am envious also. Your laser is bigger than mine, that's for sure. 

But I heard that if you keep the area around your laser clear, it makes it look bigger!

The 40w is good for some basic cutting and etching. But if you want to cut thicker veg tan with less scorching, or cut reasonable size projects, the 150W and your working area would perform a whole lot better.

I really like what you did here though. From experience, I know how much effort and skill it takes to make laser etched leather look that good! Great job.

What brand laser engraver are you using? I'm in the market for one but all the big manufacturers seem like they are on the East Coast. I'd like to know it can do what I need before I drop $10-15K on one and I'm hoping I won't have to spend $2k to go cross country just to get a demonstration.
