This year I started working as a high school shop/craft/tech teacher (we call the class Pro-LAB Shop for acronym reasons). When I arrived, the room plate by my door was empty, which was kind of a bummer. Rather than wait for the school to order plastic tags with my name and subject printed on them, I decided to make some custom laser etched wooden tags on my own.
Being a shop teacher, these wooden tags are especially appropriate for my room, but I think they would look nice in other situations (besides schools, what sorts of institutions have room number plates? I guess mostly offices). Also, theres lots of potential to cut/engrave these in other materials for different looks.
If you'd like to see what we've been up to in the Pro-LAB Shop class, here is a link to our Instructables page: https://www.instructables.com/member/ProLabShop/

We don't have a laser cutter at my school (yet), so... I made it at TechShop.www.techshop.ws
