2023-04-15 (Sa) Grindfest2023 Badge layout and test engravings

At Grindfest2023 I wanted to make merit badges for attendees who helped out. The idea came from my fiance, who suggested it after the year's theme became "scouting."

I painted a small piece of plywood red and white and let it dry. I designed a round badge with holes around the outside so it could be sewn, but they were small enough to pass as decoration if folx wanted to glue or pin them to their clothing. Each badge has a 50 mm diameter. The designs cut well, and the engraving went quickly. Each unit took less than a minute to make, so engraving many for the event should be affordable.
Tested on bare wood and painted
