Draw a light pencil line down the middle of the board as a reference mark. The next step is why I cut a few inches off each end, and why you need to find a TechShop
in your area. I'm using a 60 watt Epilog Helix Laser Cutter/Engraver
to put in an image I selected online (thanks to www.allthingsthrifty.com
). Line the center of the board up with the image size in your program, check from various angles to make sure the image will appear even, and hit go. You can see the image starting to be produced in the last picture.
