I’ve had a few inquires from people in my hobby whether I make trophies with my laser-cutter. I already have somewhat of a handle on laser-cutting wood, but I bought some acrylic, started tinkering with it and came up with this proof-of-concept. I ran out and bought a router to finish the edges of the plaque base made out of just plywood. I have since found a nice source for solid wood.
(Oh yea, 80W 500mm x 700mm Chinese CO2 laser.)
