Your results are always super perfect and incredibly beautiful, it is great that your enormous work with this procedure / technique is rewarded in this way.
Stay healthy and thank you

I’m very impressed by the illusion. Some of those look nearly reflective. Well done.

This was done on Alder wood with a very light wipedown of Latex primer thinned to consistency of milk


Beautifully done. I hope I live long enough to reach your skill level.

Well I,m 70 not much more time for me…LOL

I wish you another 70 years, and good health to go with it!!
I would love to learn how to do this on my 60 watt CO2 laser, so I have a few tiles to practice with. Also some beech plywood if it will work well.

I think i will start to hate you :rofl:, you achieve goals that i can only dream, and i’m really trying to work in NWT method, but i don’t know why i’m not able to have even a quater of your results…

I have noticed that these incredible results seem to be mostly by folks using diode lasers. I’m hopeful that I can accomplish a similar result on my 60w OMTech, but so far it is a disaster. Good thing a box of 100 tiles is only $10 bucks!

@Bulldog I was going to comment on one of your other posts which had what looked like stacked ball bearings, but even the wood chrome looks good. You also seem to have a new laser? Faster speed? Are you happy with the results?

:sunglasses: Very nice work, the detail in making the chrome appearance is unreal!

All I can say is WOW. you must know that NWT guy or something… :wink:

@2urtle This was with Ortur Pro LU2-4 FAC …real pain machine …needs continual maintenance

@2urtle its a modified Ortur Pro…I bought The Timothy Rothman 32 bit controller…added a rear drive …using TMC 2209 stepper boards with 0.9 steppers …and LU2-4 FAC Ortur 24 V Laser unit

Thank you…

This is superb stuff. Please keep posting. Your work is a terrific stimulus.
