Etch a Sketch

This laser-etched wood panel designed by tattoo artist Kris Davidson is pretty awesome.
While the grain of the bamboo itself interferes in a few spots with the actual patterns—perhaps suggesting that something like stained hardwood would be a better choice to really make this thing pop—it's nonetheless a fantastically intricate and obsessively detailed project.
Part mandala, part maze, it's like the floor plan of an alien palace, the board of an incomprehensible game, or a construction diagram for some occult supercomputer.

It would be great to see this blown up to the size of an entire wall or decorative panel—or even just used as the basis of a student architecture project. Milled landscapes, or site plans burned directly into wood, suitable for hanging once the semester is finally over.
There is one more shot over on Davidson's website, and check out his tattoos while you're there.
