Further Laser Cutting Adventures

Wow. The last time that I wrote about my laser-cutting adventures (eight months ago), I had just come up with a filigree butterfly design and was pleased with the way it turned out.

Since then I’ve been really busy, and have been doing some work for Maria Allen, who makes really clever use of the way that the laser can personalise gifts to make them unique.
