3D Wooden Comic Book Cover: Hardddcover

by Lambert Varias

Instructables member kevinmakes wanted to have a copy of Amazing Fantasy #15 on his wall. The problem? That’s the comic book that introduced Spider-Man to the world, making it an extremely rare and expensive comic. So kevinmakes decided to do something nearly as amazing: make a layered wood replica of the comic’s cover.

To make his awesome yet affordable piece, kevinmakes looked for a large image of the Amazing Fantasy #15 cover online, then converted it into black and white. Then he separated the parts of the image that he’ll cut into different parts or layers. He then used a laser cutter to cut and engrave the images on balsa wood and assorted veneers. Finally he sprayed it with a semi-gloss polyurethane finish.

Swing over to Instructables to get the full instructions. Hey kevinmakes, wanna know how you can buy your own laser cutter? Make more of these then open up an Etsy shop. Maybe you can even sell cheaper 3D printed copies in full color. Excelsior!
