i really like the pattern, how did you do it, where did you get it ? is it possible to download vector to lasercut it myself ?

Thank you! I made it by sketching detailed plans on paper and then manually drawing the vector artwork on my computer, everything here is completely my own. Unfortunately the vector artwork isn't available for download or public use.

Good use of layering, did you send the files to a manufacturer (like ponoko) or do you have your own?

Thanks! I'm not lucky enough have my own laser cutter (yet) but I actually work part time at a laser cutting studio so I have access to the facilities there.

That looks amazing!

When I used a laser cutter at Uni it often burned the edges of the wood and could never produce detail such as the antlers on the little deer figure. Did you have to sand the pieces down? Or do you have access to a much better laser cutter than I did?

Thanks! If you look closely, all the edges on this are burnt but I like that as it gives the shapes more definition. I don't do any sanding down except for on the thick plywood on the bottom which occasionally doesn't cut properly, I cant say whether the laser I use is better, sometimes you have to play around with the settings to get a clean finish.

I've always dreamed of a phone case that says 'I am two things; a supreme player, and an owl aficionado' and now it seems at long last I have found it.
