Default cross and dog tags from hardwood laminate flooring

Here is a project I just completed. I used my new found treasure of laminated hardwood flooring. It does eat up a few blades but I really like how it cuts.
Thanks for looking and all comments welcome.

Great Job!!! About Laminate Flooring....It's a nice material to cut but it will eat up some blades because ...Melamine resins are the main component of the wear layer. The melamine surface gets its incredible durability from aluminum oxide. Aluminum oxide is almost as hard as diamonds and provides unsurpassed wear and stain resistance.
Top notch craftsmanship Bubba!!!!

Thanks for all the comments. This stuff really does eat up a blade but the detail it yields without breaking is incredible. I've done a few projects just to check its workability but now that I've determined it can be cut I want to save it for a few special projects.
I've been using platinum blades from Seyco and was able to cut three different projects before the blade started to dull. After that I used it to cut 1/4 inch plywood and it cut great so I still get more use out of it.
Hope everyone had a great Thanksgiving!!

Bubba
