What would you build with a new laser cutter? Answered

If you won, what's on the project building agenda? This isn't part of the contest, I'm just curious.

Oh good! I found this old question and since another laser cutter contest is currently at the voting stage I thought It very topical. I would build:
From individually cut pieces, I would assemble a pattern featured in George Bains book 'Celtic Knotwork' . It is the spiral pattern centrepiece of the Aberlemno Stone .
The reader is informed that the pattern can be 'broken out' of its circular form but not told how.  I worked at it, I broke it out and in the process discovered an underlying pattern which convinces me that it could be put onto a sphere.  I've carried that idea in my head for twenty years.

So, to reiterate the question:

What would you do?

I'd use it, among manymanymany other things, to make components for my jewlery. I'd love to feature more organic materials in my designs without paying through the nose for them.
