IncenseBurn

Whether it is for celebration or prayer, incense burners are beautiful accessories to have at home. Usually made of wood in order to house the burning incense sticks safely and eventually, the wood absorbs the smell of the incense.

Introducing IncenseBurn, your DIY incense burner box that would fit all the common incense sticks sizes.

Originally, IncenseBurn came in one design, which was based on geometric patterns that were widely used in Islamic architecture. For the next step, I decided to create the tool that would allow users to either pick from already set designs to send straight to the laser cutting machine, or they also have the option of downloading the pattern builder file and following the detailed steps, they will be able to create their own custom design, learn how to prepare the file and send it to the laser cutting machine.
