    Cheers - I can't take credit for anything other than the concept, CAD work and the inlaying. The board and inlays were laser cut by Doug at Parable Guitars. Doug is a fantastic fellow....here's a video showing how he cuts the boards....


    Oh yeah - "laser scrimshaw" is where you leave bits of the inlay connected so they align perfectly when you inlay them....Doug cut each biohazard symbol's outline fully but only cut the gaps between each "piece" of the symbols to within a mm of the full depth. I then inlaid the pieces in the cut board upside-down and sanded off the connective material. Eeeeee-asy.
