Laser Cutter Used To Create Wood Carving Templates

We used the laser cutter to create templates out of 1/8-inch MDF which can be used to pencil in cut lines for wood carving. The templates can be used over and over and help the woodworker visualize what they’re doing.

Mark used Adobe Illustrator to create the templates.  Like Inkscape, we ran into some teething pains getting RDWorks to read the dimensions we wanted.  We did this by setting the scale in AI to MM, before saving as DXF.

AI doesn’t have a native single-stroke font (Inkscape does!).  So Mark just drew letters by hand and used them to etch each spoon for identification.
