Introduction: Viking Horn
Today we're doing an unusual engraving project - a Viking Horn on our Speedy 400 laser engraving machine! We're engraving a pattern on both sides with a strip of TroLase Lights engraved plastic material for decoration.

Add a Teacher Note to share how you incorporated it into your lesson.
Step 1: Preparing the Laser
Go ahead and switch the lens off of your Speedy 400 from your usual 2 inch lens to a 4 inch lens. The reason we want a 4 inch lens is because the wider lens allows us to engrave on a much large curved object without loosing focus of our artwork.
Step 2: Leveling the Horn
Create a jig to help keep the horn completely leveled.
Step 3: Engraving
Place the Horn inside of your Speedy 400. Then proceed to engrave your design into the horn.
Step 4: Decorations
Use TroLight material for a clean professional look to your new customized viking horn.
