Step 1: Tools and Material


- Dremel tool (for the hole)

- Small file (to smooth out the edges)

- Sanding paper (to smooth the surface of the wood)

- Saw (to cut out the wood / CD shard)

- Laser Engraver (obviously :> )

- Glue (epoxy or hotglue)


- Old CD

- Scrap wood or metal

- String (leather, silver necklace or just string)

Step 2: Let's Go

1. Cut out a rough shard, and place it in the engraver, and engrave it as shown in the video.

2. Smooth the edges with the file, and cut out a template for the droplet (cardboard), then cut out the droplet.

3. Cut out another template, but 3mm wider/longer, as a base for the CD piece

4. Mix the epoxy or heat up the glue gun (the hotter the better!), and glue the CD hologram onto the wood.

    For wood, I would go for a simple 1K clearcoat. Means no hardener no curing in heat, just a spraycan :)
