hard maple laser engraving job, with a 3/4" thick black acrylic base
Florida Plastics Projects
These are about 13" high, so I needed a base of some sort, as the 1" thick maple would be tippy.
The raw material wood boards I get from ebay.  Ebay prices are great, but the shipping doubles it,
making it a little higher than a trip to a local hardwood shop, like General Hardwoods, here in
Fort Lauderdale.  Make sure to get the same wood thickness to make the laser engravers job easier.
The wood is already surface planed, so prep is easy, just cut to size, and a light orbital sand.

Again, the design aspect of these projects are like therapy for me, taking the noise of manufacturing away.
