Laser-Cut Woodland Placemats

20th December 2013 (10 years ago)

This was a Christmas gift to my parents. Design was done in Inkscape. Once I was happy with design, I took it to a specialist laser cutting shop near Bethnal Green. They had machines large enough to cut all 6 placemats and coasters out of a single sheet of birch ply in a single job. Once I got them home, I used wire wool to tidy and then varnished and sanded to give them protection.
