With summer nearly over, you might be thinking about finding a new hobby for the colder months, so why not release your inner geek and get into the world of laser cutting? Whether you’re a professional manufacturer or a rookie, laser cutting tools from Boxford offer endless possibilities for your creative projects.
Before we dive in, it’s worth understanding what laser cutting is all about. Laser cutting is a manufacturing technique that uses a laser to engrave, cut, or mark materials such as wood, acrylic, paper, leather, and metal. Boxford laser cutters and engravers are a fantastic tool for makers, artists, and hobbyists.
Here are some examples of items you can create with a laser cutter:
Customised Acrylic Keyrings

Laser cutting is not limited to flat materials. You can create both 2D and 3D puzzles with ease. Design your puzzle pieces using the software and then cut them out from a sheet of wood and voila! You have a puzzle, perfect for a party or wedding favour!
