Picture of Personalize your wooden phone cover
A few weeks ago I bought a bamboo iphone cover for my girlfriend. She was searching for a while, so I bought it as a surprise. But I wanted to make it more personal ... 

Have fun personalizing your cover !! 

Step 1: Find the right picture

When looking for a picture, it is important that there is a lot of contrast. It is best to take a picture where the face is partially illuminated by the sun, but where shade is also present.

Stupid question i guess, but what did you ise to laser engrave? What machine is what im asking i guess..

Just a 'normal' laser cutter (trotec speedy 100, laser cutter in my school). Load in the black image, set the power on 10 and speed on 12 for the color black, and the program will automatically translate the image into a sequence of lines that are lasered. Because of the high speed the laser won't cut through the material, but just engrave it.

PS: the preset for speed (12) and power (10) is different for each machine (the numbers are percentage of the electrical power and max speed of the machine). So start with a low power level and a high speed, you can always go over it again.

Hopefully this will help you out !
