My laser engraving machine is one of my favorite tools that I have in the studio. I treat the process like a modern stick maker would treat dye art.
Full Spectrum makes the laser engraving tool I use – It is an American made product, which I always try to support. I also like being able to call customer service. I do not think I am smart enough to operate a laser on my own. Being able to admit that to myself will probably prevent me from burning down my office!
My first project came from the Danish Lacrosse team. I now have one of their official hoodies as a personal thank you for engraving these bad boys.
Most of the ideas that come my way are able to be produced. On the left is a TWIG made for Josh Hawkins from the Boston Cannons. On the right is a stick I sent off to Colin and Samir to congratulate them on their new YouTube channel. I was still learning when I tried to engrave Hawkin’s signature. The fine print messed me up at first.
I had hoped to do more topical stuff like this Super Bowl giveaway, but this season has been very busy. I appreciate all of the support, so I am not complaining. Maybe next year we will have some exclusive LAS one-off giveaways.
The heat of the laser gives off two different colors. On the right is my high school coach’s son Theodore. His stick was burnt with the laser a bit to high, resulting in the darkened letters.
