Here's my first woodcut on the laser machine. As noted in the caption above, I needed to do some hand carving in the areas that I wanted to be clear of incidental marks. The laser was great in getting my key imagery transferred to the wood. Since it was a digital file I could increase and decrease everything until it was just right, then go in with the hand tools.
