(And be careful. Any laser powerful enough to cut is powerful enough for a stray reflection to damage your eyes in an instant.)

You can, but the industrial cutters use 10-50 watt lasers capable of cutting ...lots...

a dvd or blu-ray burner can SLOWLY cut opaque materials...at much much less than 1 watt...

the principal is the same, just MUCH slower and smaller.
