My idea was to engrave this.
It turned out well.....
It took somewhere around 8 hours. I think the first mistake was wood choice. Pine doesn't seem to be the best to engrave. . .
I did measure 3" with a calipers from laser to board, moved up 3.4mm and set focus on a black powder coated piece of steel, and then moved the Z back down 3.4mm. that has helped immensely with cutting.

Not giving up yet. Trying a dithered version that is a couple hours in, which is already looking better.
