Picture of Holy Jesus on Toast ... or ... How to Make a Killing on Ebay!
IMG_0346.JPG
Who wouldn't like to have breakfast with Jesus?  Well, now's your chance!  On Ebay, you could pay $28,000 for this opportunity, but now for the low, low price of $4.50 for a loaf of bread, plus the normal TechShop membership fees, you can have breakfast with your favorite lord and savior.

Here's how to do it...

Materials
  • 1 Slice Bread
Equipment
  • 1 standard kitchen variety Epilog Helix Laser  (See Note 1)

Note 1:  What?  Oh you don't have one of those in your kitchen?  Well, go get yourself a membership to the TechShop!  I just discovered the place, and it's totally awesome!  (I made it at TechShop)

Step 1: Start with an image you draw or find on the web.

Here's the image I started with.   I cropped the dark boarders, but was under a time crunch, so I didn't vignette the image well, so the final toast has sharp edges at the bottom.  Not the end of the world, but not great either.  If I do it again, I'll vignette the image a little better & probably go to an extreme of contrast.

My friends were talking about doing laser cut deli meat for pizza toppings. This is really great.

Hey, let me know how it comes out, or post an instructable.

Be sure to sell the peperoni on ebay -- I only take a 10% commission ;-)

Oh no! I just found this instructable! :

I can't believe I was scooped. Dang... it's hard to come up with a new idea...

Very clever. Maybe you could make something like this using a stencil made of metal sheet.

I think there are *many* ways to do it. You can buy an actual toaster that does it:. But that's a single-tasker. The ultimate kitchen multitaster is a laser :-)
