Making a sign out of wood and acrylic with the Epilog laser

RATE THIS:

This is a logo I made just for fun. I figured it would be a great image to cut out with the Epilog. The only problem is how to keep all the pieces together after they were cut out. I needed a way to keep the teeth and handplane pieces together.

My solution was to inlay the wood pieces into some acrylic I had. All I did was cut the logo out in both acrylic and wood then replace the pieces.

My cutouts are glued to another thicker piece of acrylic so when it hangs on a wall the skull and handplanes cast a shadow. I also kept the wood pieces thicker than the acrylic to add to the 3d effect.

This was my first attempt at this so it didn't turn out perfect by any means but I think it's still neat.
