    Got a cheap 40w laser from ebay. Ended up cracking the laser tube when the water pump failed.
    Finally got a replacement tube and started learning with it.
    Had a request to make a stuff animal bin and decided to add some laser work.
    First pic is after running it through the laser and the second is after my daughter painted it.

    We can all learn to run a laser but very few of us will ever be able to paint that good. Very good both of you. Merry Christmas!
