Laser cut mandalas, horses, ferns, and gems!
Above is a wood mandala necklace. It is intricately laser cut and etched from layers of wood and comes from the always amazing Sugar & Vice. To create this unique design you could use Ponoko‘s many different wood types, laser cut and etched with different radial patterns.

Laser cut tables, boxes, crowns, vinyl organization, and a broken heart
Above is coffee table inspired by Minecraft. It is a take on the simple layered topo but adding the 8-bit pixelation for all the gamers out there. It comes from Martin Raynsford and there a complete run down on how to make it Kitronik. The materials that go into the project are MDF, birch plywood, and acrylic and all available from Ponoko.

Laser cut possums, cannibals, sweatshirts, and deer
Above is a possum charm to hang on your phone (do people still do that?). It is made of laser cut acrylic that has been inlaid and bonded to a thicker white acrylic backer – all made possible by the precision of laser cutting. This beautiful, graphic critter comes from Poo Kat Dino Crafts.

Laser cut cats, more cats, a safe, a comb, and a notebook…
Above is a laser engraved and cut cat face pendant. This mirrored acrylic tabby is from KatzeShop and based on the designer own cat. She thoughtfully abstracted the cat’s pattern and incorporated the hanger for the chain into kitty’s ears.

Laser cut lanterns, signs, skulls, and a map!
Above is a laser cut paper street lamp. This work, cleverly transforming flat media like Ponoko’s cardstock into 3 dimensions, is from Paper Faber and looks just as good flat as it does “poped” up. See another look at this street lamp at the end of this post!

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.

A laser cut unicorn, a phone dock, an Astro Boy lamp, and a mother’s day card!
Above is a laser cut and etched wood floss organizer of Rasalie Gale’s iconic unicorn (on roller skates) design – here with the floss making its colorful mane. It was made by 6 By 6 Arts. It was made using 1/4″ plywood like Ponoko’s own Veneer MDF – Cherry which allows for smooth cut edges and clean Raster Engraving.
