Inspiration for laser projects can strike anywhere. It hit me when looking over the exceptionally creative DIY site, theDesignConfidential.com, where I came across this tree bookshelf. In the tutorial, they used a paper stencil and jig saw. I knew that this was definitely a project that could not only be done with a laser, but improved. With the author, Rayan Turner’s permission, I took the original plans and turned it into this great laser project, perfect for a child’s room, a school, or a whimsical library.
17 sheets of ½” plywood, cut into 4’ x 2’ sections. Try to choose the flattest pieces possible.
