Intro: Fun Wood Coasters Using Laser Cutter
Made this at Techshop.ws
You will need:
Plank of wood
Some wood cutting tools -- I used the vertical band saw
A few images with a common theme
Step 1: Create Your Coasters on Illustrator and Laser the Images
4in by 4in is a good size
Design your coasters however you like. Would be good to stick with a theme here.
Download my .ai file in the attached section if you'd like to use it.
For rastering - 75 speed/ 90 power
Step 2: Cut Out the Squares
Cut out your coasters by following the square lines you rastered
Step 3: Lastly, Sand Down the Edges
Lastly, sand down the edges and round the corners.
No more cup imprints on your coffee tables!
