Next in line is the bed liner for Lindbergs 34 Ford pickup. We offer these in bamboo or basswood (see comparison photo). 1 set includes the liner of your choice, and 5 channel strips,which,once chromed (Bare Metal Foil) it will look super..no more masking!

Awesome! I was going to get one of those woodies and make the body real wood by scratch-building it. You've saved me from that fate! Way to go!

After constructing wooden beds for a couple of flatbeds, all I can say is wow that's cool.

 

When are you going to scale up to 1/16 (think Minicraft Fords)?

hey Andy, thanks man. As soon as I get hold of one of those kits I could do it. Not sure when that will be.

Nothing looks more like wood than....Wood!

Lasering certainly enables ultra thin stuff like veneers etc to be cut with ease.

I used to have access to a laser at the college where I worked and it was brilliant for cutting and etching designs onto wood.

Also great for cutting perspex, but not so good on sheet polystyrene except very thin stuff. The heat of the laser leaves a build up around the edges.

Just out of interest, there is thin plywood that is actually made for lasering. The bonding layers do not give off so much black carbon as ordinary plywood.

Andy,

 

How deeply does one need to sand to get rid of the burned edges? This is the one nitpick I have with most of the laser cut stuff I have seen built up.

not very deep, as you can see in the photos its just at the surface. I dont char the edges like some do..I try to use less power with more passes to cut vs high power for quicker time. if your staining these though, its not really necessary to sand the edges, since staining blends that in anyway.
