    AR Pen and Box

    B-Day present for my Son. He works at Spikes Tactical - They make AR's.

    I cannot do laser cutting this fine (note trigger) without burning up the wood.
    My laser mentor did the Blackwood inlay cuts using a 100 watt laser.
    My 35 watt laser will just char and burn something this small and his vaporizes it with very little overburn.

    I don't know what's cooler...the box, the pen, or the fact that your son works for Spikes Tactical.

    I'm betting he'll be very pleased with the gifts.

    And you say that's a cutout and inlay on the pen? Wow!!!!

    Very impressive!

    Well done on the laser work and the pen.
