TekTree part 2 - Lasercutting

- 1 min read

Last friday I actually got to cut the parts for my TekTree! So excited! This is by far the biggest “piece” I have ever laser cut but luckily everything went well. This in part is thanks to my brilliant friend Ron who helped me create the sketches for the laser cutter. Thanks again Ron!

Top tip! You don’t have to laser cut the designs. Just print the designs with a regular printer and stick it on some wood. Then just use something like a bandsaw to cut the pieces!

Laser cutting video

I’ve gotten so much positive feedback on my last laser cutting video that I decided to make another one. This one is a little different though. It’s a compilation of a few different cuts.
