Step 1: Cut pieces out of 1/4″ thick laser-safe material
Step 2: Apply a layer of painter’s tape to one side of each of the pieces with cutouts
Step 3: Mix up a batch of Razzo and add a generous amount of Aluminum chips. The more you add, the more will appear in the finished effect.
Step 4: Pour Razzo into the cutouts, overfilling slightly, and let harden for about 2.5 hours.
Step 5: Sand up to a 220 grit until the Razzo is flush with the laser ready sheet
Step 6: Using wood glue assemble the vase. This isn’t going to be water tight on its own but I still went ahead and sealed the corners with Thick wood glue, and added two generous coats of Total Boat Halcyon to the interior.
Step 7: Apply a wood finish of choice to the exterior and let soak in. I used a cutting board oil.
Step 8: I slipped a large Ball Jar into this before adding my flowers, but any container that fits will work.
