Introduction: Laser Cut Candle Lamps

An easily assembled small candle holder that functions as an aesthetic decoration piece and when lit radiates soft light.

The files can be downloaded on the link below, and are available in 3dm, DWG and PDF


  • Laser cutter/ Engraver (50W>)
  • MDF/Plywood 3mm and 2mm
  • Tracing paper
  • Sand paper
  • tea light (small candle)
  • Wood glue
  • Glue stick

Step 1: Cut Files

The files are set up and good to go, simply load them onto your cutting layers as per the layer titles and send the job to cut.

Step 2: Sanding

If your not to keen on the aesthetic of the burn marks from the laser now is the best time to start sanding them away.

Step 3: Base Assembly

Assemble the rotating base piece and static base pieces as per the Step 3 image instructions.

Step 4: Tracing Paper

Prepare 4 pieces of tracing paper and glue each piece to the back of each elevation of the candle (1 layer per face) this can be attached with a glue stick.

Step 5: Assembly

Assemble the lamp as per the Step 5 image Instructions.

Once complete, its time to light your candle and insert the rotating base piece :) (If you need remove the candle please blow it out via the hole at the top, seems obvious but mistakes do happen haha.)

Step 6: Enjoy!

And your finished! Enjoy your new candle lamp, if you want to do any decorating or spray painting such as the attached image it is best to do this before assembling the pieces.

I Hope this project has brought you a bit of fun.
