This week I received my Laser cut base from Ponoko. I think Ponoko will be my go-to online shop for Laser cut from now on. I was really chuffed with their service: functional and easy to use web site app, automated price quotes and fast turn around time. Plus $20 off my first order.. niiice.

The only trade off for this efficiency is that they use set sheet/template sizes so I had to shrink the bases design a little too get it to fit in the most affordable template.

A little bit of masking tape and wood glue and the base is now complete.
