    My hubby lazer engraved an image of a faverolle hen's face peaking through a pane of glass. It goes in a 4 lt barn sash window I'm putting in my coop. It's tough to photograph though, even tougher to do in a moving vehicle!

    I can't wait to get this coop done. I have the base started, and the weathervane almost done.... and I even found an old horse shoe from my old horse when I was a kid. Thats going on the door for good luck! It's been more fun scrounging up or making things for this project, than had we just gone out and bought a shed kit to throw together.

    Wow! Engraving huh? I used to do sand blast etching, but am still trying to find a setup to work on (preferably my own, but runs about $2000).

    Beautiful!!!!!!!!!

    Quote:I actually HAVE all the equipment for sandblasting here. Time to unearth it! Laser engraving is so cool, really gets the details.

    SillyChicken, that is lovely. Hope we get more pics when it's all done! [​IMG]
