This instructable covers how I made a sweet laser-etched sundial. 

Step 1: Gather your materials

You will need:

A piece of wood
a ruler
a pencil
a drill press
a laser cutter/etcher
a chop saw
<p>Great design! <br></p><p>Also on how to do marquetry with a laser using ImagePaint software by Amazon Canvas (www.amazoncanvas.com)</p>
<p>Nice looks on the watch escapement part. I admire the graphic effect of the laser charred wood in contrast to the white wood. Only one little thing on the sun dial part: Remember how many revolutions mother earth performs per day? Consider it a nature's major design flaw, but nature doesn't follow your thoughts here. Hint: 24 would be a good choice to start with...</p><p>Enjoy the ironic complexity :) </p>
<p>Muy bonito, me gustaria hacer uno similar, puedes publicar los planos</p>
