    How does it do with laser engraving?

    It's lovely! I may be able to dig up some photos somewhere if you want, but it does great. Bubinga isn't too dark so it always pops.

    My favorite pieces of Bubinga are very wavy and have a tonnnn of chatoyancy. We've had a few batches come through recently that were more straight-grained, though, and those are not as exciting.


  2. My addictions are first and foremost dog sports/stuff, then probably dice. I, like @Konas, like to get new dice for each character... the problem is that I assign them a small color palette and then EVERY time I see dice that fit those colors, I want those dice for that character as well. And then it just never ends.

    I also have an earring addiction. It's gotten so bad that people don't know what earrings to get me as gifts anymore.

    Oh, and jackets... I have a really bad jacket problem. I may have more jackets than I do shirts. Definitely more jackets than pants or dresses.

    My husband spent the whole week sick, and is still coughing. I am doing my best not to catch it. I already had a round of this myself several weeks ago but my immune system likes to take breaks frequently.

    Same with my boyfriend! Restocking on Dayquil and nasal decongestant and chest decongestant tonight..

    Some WIP shots of my next project -- Shadows of Brimstone Depth Tracker.  This is a resin piece that replaces the cardboard template included in the game.  I've had it for quite awhile, and we've used it unpainted, but it's time to get on with finishing it.

    Bare primer.  The reading glasses behind it should help give scale.  It's pretty darn big!

    I hit the wooden frame in AP Dark Stone first and pretty much coated the entire piece.  I came back with some medium brown (I think AP calls this 'fur brown') to lighten the areas that will be parchment.  For speed, I decided to airbrush this too, meaning I had to mask off the wood.  Inefficient, but still faster overall.

    Here, the parchment areas have been airbrushed with Skeleton Bone and the masking tape has been removed.  I went back over the oversprayed wood areas with Dark Stone and made the Depth Track "sign" a consistent lighter brown.  I'm dreading doing all of the lettering.  :)

    Oooh!!! I am so excited to see how this turns out.

    Clumsy is a dominant gene in my pool.  How my Dish remote still works, I'll never know.  Pretty impressive given  how many times I've dropped it.  So toughness is a consideration.

    Your other comment about charging would be a good topic point.  It's just a boat anchor if I can't easily keep it charged.

    Another topic point could be music from phone sync'd to some speaker thingie via bluetooth?

    Oh yeah, the motorolas we have also have incredible battery - another thing Isaac occasionally forgets to do is charge his phone, so I get ones that can stand up for a day or two without charging. I can use my phone all day and still be at 70%ish by the end of the day. I can probably go without charging it for 3 days if I only do light usage.

    I'm vehemently against iPhones but that's just me. Their battery probably won't be trustworthy after 2 years. ?
