A laser cutter and engraver alters materials using heat that is precisely measured and intense. The image is pre-designed and entered in the device's software prior to the cut to ensure its accuracy. A person can create projects of all types using the machine and use materials ranging from paper to wood and leather. In fact, these devices cut and engrave metal with ease. What are some projects a person can make with their device?


Using a laser cutter and engraver, a person can make customized coasters to fit any decor. For instance, they can choose their favourite book quote and share it with others by engraving it on coasters they use when entertaining. Other people choose their child's favourite cartoon character and engrave it on a coaster to encourage the child to use it regularly. The machine cuts simple and intricate designs with ease, allowing each person to create coasters they love and enjoy using in their homes.


When a person needs quick and easy gifts for a large group of people, they can make personalized bookmarks with the cutter and engraver in very little time. Materials used for the bookmarks can be scrap pieces from other projects or a speciality wood that a person has been wanting to try but needed the perfect project to justify the cost. People will see the finished product and be impressed with the giver's skill and talent.

The machine cuts wood, glass, and plastic easily, allowing each person to choose the right material for their needs. The board won't present much of a challenge, as it remains the same regardless of the set. Where a person can show their creativity is in the design of the individual pieces.

Pod Holders

Visit any home in America today and there is a good chance you will see a Keurig or other pod coffee machine. People love these devices, as the pods allow every person to create a cup of coffee they love without brewing a new pot. Buying pods in bulk helps the owner save money, but the pods must be stored. Coffee lovers can create a unique holder with the help of their engraver and cutter that blends in with the overall decor of their home.

The most important part of this project is designing it so the pods fit in the slots. Pods come in different diameters, so measure them before moving forward with the project. The goal is to make the slots small enough to securely hold the pods but big enough so a pod can easily be removed. Consider engraving the slots with the strength or flavour of the pods to make it easy for each person to find exactly what they need.

These serve as only a few of the countless projects a person can make with their laser engraver and cutter. Once you see how easy it is to create customized and personalized items, you'll quickly come up with other projects you wish to try.
