Load of Timber…


Yesterday I had a delivery of some Rosewood…

It would have taken a few trips with the trailer, so I opted to have it delivered…

Just in time to make some paddle boards.. more on that in future posts…

Did not get a pic of the timber on the truck but this is what was hoisted down …

 

Now to unpack the timber and store it in the lumber racks in the wood store…

Framed behind glass…


Nice picture of a ’57 Chevy…. engraved on the back of the glass… Black paper behind the engraving… all in a lovely frame.IMG_3377

Not a great picture.  Looks better in real life…light reflecting affect the total look…

 

And now for something completely different…. found some fridge magnet sheets…

This is a quick engraving of HMAS Stuart… a little light but the idea is there…

Evaluating Photo Engraving Software.


I received a trial copy of PhotoGrav this morning and am evaluating its probative value …

I have been using Universal Lasers OneTouch Photo software for a few weeks now and am happy with it but have to compare it to PhotoGrav…

First pic is a shot of the HMAS Melbourne manipulated manually and engraved using my Chinese Laser…

IMG_3373Next shot is after using PhotoGrav software and the new LaserPro machine…

Next shot was processed using One Touch Photo from Universal Lasers.

Marked difference in the first two pics but only subtle differences between the two software packages…
