I was so happy with the thin stock walnut remnants I picked up at Goby Walnut Products that I picked up some more.

I fired up the X-Carve to start cutting the components for my third Simba Simple Chair.

While the X-Carve worked, I started experimenting with halftone dithering engraving of photos on the FSL Muse.

After engraving the original photo of Jill and her catch, I decided to remove the background of the photo to get a better result.

Then I started playing with the DPI settings and decided that I liked 250 DPI setting the best.

Then I made an example of a custom quote trout I want to sell. Customers would be able to send me their own photo and quote, and I would engrave it onto a blank trout.

I am starting to create items for my upcoming online store. One of the items will be these trout silhouettes engraved with quotes from Norman Maclean’s A River Runs Through It.

I finished a complete set of Paris Metro Subway tiles. I washed them with with hot water and applied a coat of finishing wax.

I will need to take some product photos, upload them into the product pages and open up shop.
