"Angels Sir, thousands of them". These angle shapes were cut for Sarah Clarke of FluidbyDesign, they're very similar to her other angel shapes, I can't wait to see what she does with them.

Final Vale Box

This is it, I've done all the tweaks and changes and created my final version of the vale box. It has a lock on the front to protect the goods inside, hand holes for carrying (which are a little large). A tray with 6 slots, one column for each coin type and 1 for each mana type. The lid is a nice rounded shape with angle limiting hinges, the only minor tweak left is that Ruth is going to put an image onto the lid for me, but that's not laser cut, that's good old fashioned pyrography.

Wooden Heart Box

Just in time for Valentines I have made this wooden heart shaped box. It uses the living hinge flexi sheets to create fancy curved sides and the rest is all lids and bottoms. This technique could be used for a wide range of shaped boxes, I'd love to try some other shapes if anyone has a desire. I even wrote an instructable about it, feel free to upvote me in the various competitions over there. (svg here)

Chain Guide

Another piece of anodised aluminium from Rideworks, this time the circles were cut rather than engraved, it's just as effective but it is significantly faster to cut.

Anodised Chain Ring

I've been doing a bit of cutting for Rideworks Mountain Bikes Components while he's waiting for his new laser cutter to arrive. It's hard anodises 7075 Aluminium where the laser engraves away the black parts to leave silver markings on the part.

Cake Topper

It's a cake topper for a thirtieth birthday cake. Cut from 3mm yellow acrylic, it was made gold and sparkly using glitter and glue to make it stick.

Wargaming Tokens

Evidently there are a million different things that could be laser cut for any given war game and that's not even including the scenery. These are cut in 3mm acid green acrylic and do look better on a darker background than the usual wood surface. You could start a business selling these things if you were so inclined and we happen to know some people who sell quality laser cutters.
