A Lasersaur laser cutter is a pretty cool TOOL to have. And building 3D from 2D can be rewarding for design projects. We have laser cut a lot of wood here, which has been used to build pieces of furniture, a UV curing station, shop organization labels, and a lot of light fixtures.
The great thing about a laser cutter is you just need a 2D profile and some left over project lights and you’re on your way to new light fixture. This is an old HID light source, a powerful light typically used for in-ceiling applications, but it looks great as a pendent too!
