I made a couple of laser bed nail boards for my Creality Falcon Module on my Ender 3 V2.
I originally made this model for a nail board, that used the bamboo cutting board from Dollar Tree.
I started by making a template in Fusion 360 and exporting a DXF file for LightBurn. (The export is completely doable with a personal license - with just a few extra steps)
And glued some magnets on the bottom to keep them from moving around.

Guess you nailed it…
Looks good… how level is it and how does it work…?
It’s beautifully level, and so far the cuts look great!
The nail tips are about 1 inch from the board. And so there are faint marking on the wood after a cut.
I can see some potential problems with wanting to use magnets to hold something down / flat.
But, with a little experimenting, I’m sure that I will find the right magnets
I just wanted to add that Magnets work so much better than I originally expected them too. They simply align themselves on the tips of the nails without any extra shifting around.
I did something similar, used screws, lots of 'em.
But I found “mending plates” at Lowe’s. The small square “nail plates” you see on the frames of new houses. I like them because they’re shorter.
nice one i had a go with the same and it worked great until i tried this with steel plate and some punk rocker studs
OMG this is fantastic hahahaha! As an old NYC punk, I salute your punk laser, sir. Well done.
