My cousin had a baptism for their daughter, and I needed a gift. It’s a good thing I have a laser! But what to make. I remembered awhile back, some bad influences did some really nice work with crushed Mother of Pearl inlays.

But what wood should I use. :thinking:
Oh, I have that nice Sapele plank. :grinning:
I can’t cut that with a Glowforge. :pensive:
But I have a friend with a router table I can borrow! :smiley:

After some Inkscape designing(with some help from The Noun Project after I realized I can’t draw a dove, even with the help of a computer (https://thenounproject.com/icon/165472/)), and some trial and error, I had a cross that came out beautifully.

I will make a post in #beyond-the-manual with my design and fabrication process.
