Laser Projects

The laser engraver has been a real asset to shop; but has not been a primary focus of marketing. Much of the laser use is to make patterns for the shop and tracing outlines directly on material to be cut.

The whistle engraving was the first laser project. In fact, the whistles were needed for a birthday party before the laser was scheduled for delivery.
