    I have used a Mac for a decade and started with Parallels, but found it glitchy and clunky (as a MacUser since 1984). So I switched to Bootcamp, it is native and runs smoothly. A lot of people...

    I have had an insulated box around mine for years and it has never had a problem. Originally it was just a square box made out of blue board built around a rubbermaid box for critter proofing, but...

    I agree with Scott, you need less contrast, not more. First of all, though, are you opposed to removing some of the background or altering it? Personally, I would make the top half of the background...

    I have had that request and I usually ask for a note from the giver to include in the box - I think that your tracking number and confirmation is sufficient proof you did your part. I normally send...

    Good point, Kev. I have mine outside too and it's really easy to NOT open up the enclosure and check it. I have to force myself to do it about every other year...during the summer! I've been lucky...

    I know nothing about LC or Rabbit, but those two examples look pretty darned good to me! And you managed to get the kid's face in the right spot to avoid the veins hitting him - good planning.

    You are correct Dave - it CAN kill your passion if you are not careful! I started with a small edition of 10 sets, which sold out in 4 days. I increased to 20, then 30 then 40 then 50 sets. This...

    Welcome to the Creek, Don. To me, it looks like the sample you show is already textured and the engraving simply darkened an image on it. There is no "stippling effect", it's a visual effect from the...

    I have been using a gunstock finish lately, called Tru-Oil. It is a wipe-on, wipe-off - so no brush marks, dust sticking or dripping, plus it dries pretty fast (15 min. to touch). I like to leave it...

    I've had four lasers and paid cash for each one. I'm not a fan of credit or owing money. As Dave said, you need a business if you want to make money. A laser is just another tool, not a magic wand....
