I have been a member of  the San Jose TechShop since they opened their doors, it is a wonderful place to create and/or destroy (with the intent of recreating something better, more about that in another 'ibble). It is also an awesome resource for quick and easy gift making.

I have friends that live at a creative household name The Farmhouse, if you can't figure it out from the name of their house, they grow a lot of their own food and do an awful lot of cooking there. I decided to make them some customized cooking utensils.

Step 1: Finding the right type of utensils to etch

I was wandering through a neighborhood Grocery Outlet and I came across this set of bamboo utensils for only $3.99, such a wonderful price for a laser etch-able gift, and with the added benefit of being from a renewable resource.
awesome job!
