Built a laser cutter.

This took about a year and maybe $2500. The design is based on the open source Laser 2.x by Barton Dring - though I've scaled it up a bit to handle 24"x12" cardboard panels. (My scaling script is here.)

The surfboard project has been all about this laser for some time. Now that it's moving and firing I can pick up where I left off with board designs and core patterns.

First tests - some handplane core assemblies :
