Some friends of mine are getting married next year, they like the look of some of the laser cut wedding invites and asked what I could come up with. Here is the first design but I think the next one will be better. (svg here)

If anyone has a kindle (4 I think, the new small one) and would like a custom case from then email me, or you can make your own from this design.

My veneer has arrived so I'm able to put together a quick test piece. In hindsight I should have bought 2 or 3 different types of wood to get some colouring effects but I'm really pleased with how well this has come up from just the different angles of the wood veneer. I'm due to pass on these techniques at Nottingham Hackspace on the 21st of November.

I wanted to do a quick test to see how several cut items could fit back together. I cut this swirl pattern from 3 coloured pieces of card and then took one of each colour and put them all back together. There is a gap between the parts the width of the laser line, more tests will be done shortly to compensate for this gap.

My sister in law showed a level of interest in the laser cutter that I was surprised about. She normally blanks geeky technical toys, so we ended up cutting a little scotty dog for her as she is a big Radley fan. We then put a hole in the neck as a key ring (the hole is a little bigger than hoped)

I did some tests cutting corrugated card, I failed to get all the way through it but cutting just the top layer seemed to be all right so I came up with this effect instead. I'm sure this will make appearances again.
