A laser cutter is an amazing tool for cutting and etching wood. SDFWA has three laser for its Shop and with just a little training you can add it to your list of woodworking tools. Three bed sizes, two power levels and rotary attachments for etching on cylindrical objects. With these tools you can easily and precisely cut wood up to 3/8" and etch any wood surface. The "Laser Intro" class is now available to both members and non-members.
In this single class you'll learn the process of going from design-to-cutting/etching. Better still, you'll practice the procedure several times and even produce your own first project. This single class is enough to certify members to use the laser. Students should be proficient with computers and be familiar with a graphics program such as Inkscape, Corel, Adobe Illustrator, Fusion 360 or Sketchup. The class is four hours long and requires a minimum of three students. Classes which don't reach the minimum will be cancelled so why chance it? Bring a friend!
