Tom, Dick and Harry

Laser cut tunnel portal

Making tunnel portals

There are three tunnels so far on Dales Peak and that reminded me of the Great Escape during World War II. They dug three tunnels to escape from the POW camp and named them Tom, Dick and Harry.

Anyway, I digress. The fact is, while I’m waiting for track to glue, I’ve started experimenting with the laser cutter to create some tunnel portals.

By testing various combinations of power and speed I was able to laser cut the dressed stone pattern into some thick card and then run a cutting path around it. Just got to cut the various other pieces to build up the different layers.
