Chess Board
April 2015
When you have access to an Epilog Helix and a Universal laser -- and need a chess set -- you improvise.

This chess board was created within 10 minutes using Visio, and engraved in 30 minutes on the Universal laser.
Normally the translucent (engraved) squares would be completely opaque, but by (accidentally) reducing the laser power I instead engraved marbled squares.
With 3"-scale chess pieces from the local game store, the chess set was made complete.
