Jack Skellington Shadow Caster

While it's Halloween and I've got the hang of the shadow caster base I thought I'd make a few more designs. Ideally I'd love to put pumpkins under the laser but I'm fairly sure it won't work and if it did it would probably make a mess so these are the next best thing. Today it's Jack Skellington (svg files can be found here)

Zombie Shadow caster

The zombie shadow caster has been done before in several places, but I wanted to create my own. It's good and topical for Halloween anyway. This one doesn't use any glue, simply relying on press fits to hold the zombies vertical and to create a little 'fence' for the tealight. (the back got cut off because the material was a little small) (svg file is here)

Spiral cut pattern

My aunt asked if I could cut a pattern similar to the one in the egg. So I gave it a shot, the design is kinda similar just not cut into an egg.

Wedding Card

For our friends wedding Kim asked me to make something nice and lasery. So I had a quick google for inspiration and came up with this neat little card design. Unfortunately they didn't get it in time for their wedding because we forgot it (and we already had a card anyway). (svg here)

Cake Stencils

I make a mean chocolate torte (or at least James Martin does) and I got asked to make one for my wife to take to a hen party. To make the cocoa powder dusting extra special I cut a stencil with the laser and used it to dust text on the top of the cake. I'm sure you can figure out what the stencil looked like so here is a picture of yummy cake.
