As a veteran of the Air Force, I remember looking for items that were of good quality to display in my home and office and I still do. And now that I have the ability to make such items I want to share in this instruct able how to make one. They make great gifts for those that are or were ever in the military. Normally they are made to be about 18 inches in diameter, but this small 4 inch emblem makes for a great desk decoration.
During this instructable I will walk through the instructions of for the US Air Force emblem, although I use the same method for each service.
After deciding which service emblem to use, I had to find a good picture of it. Because military service emblems are free use, you can find them pretty much any where, but you need to find one that is large enough and clear. The best picture use with the laser engraver is a black and white vector graphic. I found my service emblems at http://www.defense.gov/multimedia/web_graphics/
, here there is all the services and the esp. graphics are perfect.
