Extreme laser cutting - First reason to enter the Epilog contest. Answered

I was doing my daily rounds, one of which is to search 'steampunk' on flickr, when i happened across these. With the upcoming Epilog contest, i thought they were most relevant.

From, Flickr user Jared most of his good work (for a quick glance) is in his lased Flickr set

If your looking for an incentive to enter, just have a browse through these pictures. My personal favorites are the cool cubes. Which i think would look great on any desk.

There is alot more to be found, if you have a browse. Any of you on flickr, be sure to drop some nice comments.

Laser cutters are very sleek machines, I run an abrasive waterjet and can get it to do some fairly amazing stuff, from pumpkin carving to engraving marble to.. well making those Borg-ish Cubes this fellow has... they're very nice.. I've made some dice with different imagry cut out of them, similar to the way you make the cubes Tbh, I am jealous of lasers operators... they dont get nearly half as dirty as I do but they can't cut through 8in thick steel.. mahah

Sweet! That second picture is on a table at the Santa Fe Complex. I've actually seen and held those cubes in real life. The guy that made them was a founder of etsy

You don't need to give me any more reasons to enter the contest.... Just need to get my brain working and think of a great idea...actually I have lots of great ideas , but all of them will make an irreparable hole in my budget. :P These cubes are so awsome, really shows you how precise laser cutting is! They make a great ornament! Thanks gmjhowe! :D
