    Adirondak Chair Image

    Anyone have a good Adirondak chair image/source they can share. Looking to engrave it on a piece of slate as a gift. What I found so far has lines and details that are too fine and don't reproduce well. Thanks.

    Sean -
    I never knew what those chairs were called; now, I do. Don't see where you're having a problem; I simply Google-searched "Adirondak chair"; > images > under tools went to line-drawings. You're gonna use your mini 40 w to etch into slate? - I, too, have a 40W - I do plenty of graphics 'n photos on solid back granite with great success, but never on slate. - would like to know (see) how it turns out for you. - good luck!

    I did use Google to find those. The problem is that the thin lines do not produce well on the slate I am using. The fine lines do not show up well. Was looking for something more "stencil" like without looking cartoonish. I will keep trying some until i find something that works. If I get it to work I will post some pics. Thanks.

    Since you already have a graphic, thicken up the lines yourself. This will be a good learning experience for many, many projects to come.
    I read recipes the same way I read science fiction. I get to the end and I think, "Well, thatís not going to happen."

    Didn't know that was an option. Off to Google to find a Corel tutorial. Thanks for the info!

    Select your image in CD, it is probably a bitmap, on your menu bar select trace and play with that for a while. I like Alex Galvez on youtube for Corel tutorials.

    Try Pixabay.com most of the time they have free pic and artwork. They also have sponsored images that are not free. I'm cheap so I steer clear of those.
