Using filters in photoshop, we were able to turn a photo into a routable picture. This photo has been converted into a series of dots that are cut into a piece of laminated wood to create a fantastic effect when hung on a wall.

- Toolpaths: Pocket Toolpath/Photo engrave toolpath if using Version10+ of Vcarve
