    I love to take photos and then give friends gifts. When I was no longer interested in just giving printed photos I was looking for other opportunities to make gifts from photographs. After a long search I found in the Internet the portrait on the wood surface. At first I thought that the portrait is a handmade and burnt by the professional artists, but then I found a CNC woodburner.

    I immediately loved this idea - to photograph people and give them their portraits on the wood. I was digging some money and bought myself a CNC! Here's what I got:


    How it works:

    That looks like way more fun than lightscribe. Thanks for sharing :)

    So that's how it is done. I have recently seen a set of 3/4 size portraits burned onto waney edge boards at either Erddig or Bodnant that are clearly photographic in origin, reproduced from old photographs of staff. They look very striking indeed.

    Yes, portraits made by lightscribe prints by contours. Typically, vector files (eg Corel Draw ) used for lightscribe. Shadows are very important for a analog portrait.
    CNC have shadows depth adjustment.

    Now I have order for 4mm plywood cover for wedding album) People love it!
