I decided to use the laser engraver to create a Mother's Day present.
Step 1: Sanding
After picking a piece of 8.5x11 inch wood, I used a piece of sandpaper to make it smooth.
Step 2: CorelDraw X8
I selected the Pitt logo because that is where my mom went to college. I drew a bitmap of it in CorelDraw x8 and edited out the parts that were added for copyright purposes.
Step 3: LASER ENGRAVER!
After centering the image and the wood, I used the laser engraver to engrave the logo onto the wood.
Step 4: Painting
I used water colors to paint the logo blue and gold, the Pitt colors.
