  1. Ya that's the photo I'm going to make another one and try not to warp it so much. When I do I will post a better photo.
  2. So I recently acquired a laser engraver and I have been experimenting with it. While learning how to do new things I decided to make a little trinket that I thought I would share here. I Created a copy of of the message found inside Conventical of Seran written in steel using the Steel alphabet. The whole thing is about 3.4x2.1 inches approximately the size of a business card. I did have an issue with this one. I attempted to engrave the back but used to slow of a setting and just overheated the metal and warped it. However the Steel alphabet font worked well. Anyways i would love to heard what you all think of this. I'm considering making a bigger one.
  3. So as a test I had the Cosmere logo put on a stainless steel coin. This will be a good test to see if I can use it for making my own leather work stamps.
  4. Ok here is an update on the project. So ultimately I had 6 pendents in 2 of each wood. So I tried several different ways to fill in the script in. I wanted to start with the lighter woods and fill with green. Of these my first set didn't turn out very visible but I learned how to best fill in with color. So that anyone reading the best way to fill in the script is to pack the lines with mica powder then cover with resin. Anyways with the padouk wood I decided that I wanted to try to to fill in the white on one and I left the other alone though with the laser cutting that means black. Ultimately I didn't like how the birch turned out the resin created dark lines that altered the look to much. So after applying my mica and resin to fill the inside I was able to sand the extra off then apply a outer coating to give it a nice shine. Pictured here is the final maple with green and both versions of the padouk. I have also included the unfinished maple as well so you can see the difference. I used no stain on these.
  5. So he used a laser engraver possibly his glowforge I didn't ask what one he used. I added a link to the font on the women's script page of the coppermind. All I did was italicize it afterwords. I did some sanding and the script became even a little clearer. However some of the really close lines still blend to much. I might need a version of the script has a little more spacing or only make thing bigger than 1 inch tall.
  6. So I had a associate who owns a laser cutter cut out a pendent I designed. Using a font for woman's script I wrote I love you then my wife's name and then added her favorite order at the bottom. They turned out pretty good I used a couple of different woods to see what would look best. Next I will do some sanding and I'm going to try putting colored resin in the light woods to see how that looks. They only problem I see with this is that the walls between some of the script are very thin so it may not work out like I'm hoping. But I wanted to share so other people could benefit from the idea. I used inkscape (free program) to make the svg file. I will post more pictures when I'm finished to show how they turned out. For reference the woods from left to right are birch, padouk, and eastern maple.
  7. So now that we have a nice list of wines in Oathbringer I was hoping to start helping with the coppermind again and this seemed like an easy subject to start. I did not see any pages specifically for it in the coppermind. Will that be ok and if anyone has advice on where to place those pages please let me know. I will post here again this afternoon with how I think it should be listed. So I did some thinking and would like to know how you guys feel about this. Culture - Food(rename to Food & Drink?) - Beverages (Roshar) I would also place them like in these categories. Stormlight_Archive Culture That way if anyone wants to down the road its easy to add food and drink pages for each world. I figure having one page for listing the wines makes sense, otherwise it would just be a bunch of stubs. I think one page listing the kinds of drinks and brief summaries of each and then let more information about drinks have there own page with just a listing on the Beverages page. This way I'm not trying to consolidate existing pages just reference them and the admins can decide if some pages should just be redirected.
  8. Thanks for the feed back So we are agree inquisitor spike were round. For a spike to be made someone must have intent in spooks case it was ruin we have WoB on that I believe.
  9. It has been bothering me for some time now. unfortunately I have been unable to read Mistborn again to check on account of lending out my copy to a friend. Does anyone know whether they are round spikes or square spikes like old nails. See they could make them round if they directly cast them and that is not unreasonable for the size. However there could be an argument make for the square as it would be easier for you to have them made without the foundry making them directly. This is most relevant for the steel spikes which have the highest melting point. However because cost is not a factor for the lord ruler convenience means nothing to the lord ruler. He could halve had them made for looks not factoring anything else. A round Spike would be able to easily go though a person into a second person with out taking a lot of the first person with it. If I remember correctly that steel inquisitors have round steel circles for eyes. I always pictured them as round myself and the ends could be round regardless of the main body of the spike being round or square. Examples below Well one have any thoughts on this I would really appreciate the help. I have started casting with brass and I want to make a brass spike for display purposes, but I want to make the right kind. I did find this on the Coppermind from the Mistborn RPG and that seems to indicate that they are round.
  10. That makes it much more consistent.
  11. Wow thank you very much. That saves me a lot of work hopefully my project will turn out. I will post pictures when I'm done.
  12. Ya I found that thread and it was very helpful. I just need to sit down I guess and draw it out. Would have made my life a little easier if someone already had is all.
  13. I was wondering if anyone had Translated Life before death. Strength before weakness. Journey before destination into Alethi script? Thought I would put out feelers and see if I could save my self the effort of making the picture myself, If someone else had already done it. I have to say the primers already available in the gallery are going to work well for me if I have to do it my self.
  14. I have been citing directly form reddit for anything I felt I needed add. There is a template for it {{url ref}} though I allways seem to get it wrong when I do it.
  15. I'm not hearing a no.
