Laser Cutter in Action

Today Luke and I hit up the laser cutter in the UB Architecture Department to cut some letterforms out of hardwood.  The Universal laser cutter worked really well even on maple and walnut.  I’ve decided that maple will probably be the way to go – but I still may test the sheet of cherry wood I bought.

Soon I’ll be adhering these letterforms to a block of the right height to make them type high, then a few more test prints.  After that, the files will be scaled up and the actual production will begin.  Until then, look for more entries on the artists and craftsmen involved, and check out this video of the laser cutter in action!
