Here's one I just finished using the jig devised by Benson (Bob) Pace. Amazing what you can do with a rubber band!
This was done on Maple with six coats of CA at burn 75.

Benson ( Bob ) Pearce is a friend of mine and created the rubber band laser engraver jig , he was with me last Saturday when I did the first demonstration of casting here Downunder
Is video on YouTube is nice and his new jig can do bottle stopper, ring, pen and more depending your imagination

In our demonstration last Saturday

Burn intensity = 30
Burn time = 9 minutes 47 seconds on the juniper wood card case

Burn intensity = 30
Burn time. = 28 minutes on the leather keychain ring. It is a two part image with the frame outline and the logo within the frame. Takes a long time but you can combine multiple images to get a nice effect. Remember this laser is not meant to be a production work-horse but it is well suited to perform one-offs.

Slimline in olive with turquoise inlay.




Just a tip. Different woods need different burn times depending on the hardness. If I know I am going to engrave a finished pen, I do a trial burn on the blank that I am going to turn the pen from before turning it. That way I can try a couple of different fonts, burn times, etc. and when the pen is done I know exactly what settings to use. Also pay attention to fonts. Some fonts, for example have a very narrow upper case "J" that doesn't burn very well. If I have a "John" to burn, I change to a font with a better formed upper case J.

One for one of my wife's cousins, retired Air Force. Pen is in bloodwood. Posted this in show off your pens but not here where it may be of more interest.

What did you fill the burn with to make it yellow?

I used yellow acrylic paint and gold pearl ex powder, I had 2 coats of thin ca on it before burning so just rubbed the paint in and wiped it off, it stayed in the burn.

So just a couple questions, does the burn time not change from the blank to a finished pen?
And does it burn as deep whether finished or unfinished? Thanks

The finish doesn't seem to affect the burn time appreciably. The type and hardness of the wood seems to be more of a factor. Just be very careful to refocus to the turned diameter.
