Above coasters from The Spiral Series. They are laser cut 3/16 basswood and these hypnotic graphic creations come from Five Ply Design. This would be a perfect job for Ponoko’s own Bamboo.

Laser Cutting Royal Lions

Laser cut lanterns, signs, skulls, and a map!

Laser Cutting In Her Eyes

Laser cut art, Daleks, dogs, hops, and clock!

Above is an artwork titled “Rusty Girl” from perishable Rush. It is made from paper found on the streets of Amsterdam, comic book, magazine pages, and torn screen prints which form a ski mask around laser etched, halftone eyes and a mouth. Halftone is a printing technique that using variant sized dots to create light and shade out of photographs and is well suited to laser raster engraving on Ponoko’s own cardstock or mix it up with acrylic.

Laser Cut GrannyMan Puppet

Colorful threads complete whimsical animated character

Combining rigid laser cut forms with softer materials can have quite a striking effect, as you can see in this cycling puppet designed for a short film by Teje la Araña.

Colored yarn has been threaded through the laser cut pin holes, completing the form in a way that really enhances the playful feel of the character. You can check out a brief clip of Alvaro Leon’s puppet, and even download files to make a threaded cyclist of your very own from Thingiverse.

Let us know in the comments below if you’ve done something interesting by combining laser cutting with fabric or yarn.
