We could have chosen to cut this with a handheld tool but we wouldn't have had such smooth lines. So we definitely recommend using a laser cutter to cut the finished design.
Like we said in Step 3, we will need to cut 3 pieces of wood, one for the inner layer and two for the outer layer.
You usually find a shop that does laser cutting in cities and it actually is really cheap for this project as you don't need to cut that much.
For the more adventurous, you can find many good instructables on how to build your very own laser cutter. I am telling you that after this experience, I am personally going to build me one. It's such a cool tool.
