Laser Cut Turning

Turned Piece

As an experiment I cut a bunch of “combs” out of 1/4″ plywood on the laser cutter. I then glued up the combs to form a (somewhat) solid mass. After it dried I trimmed off the edges and then turned it on the lathe.

I was pretty happy with the results. Got some interesting curves and patterns that I didn’t expect. Next phase: go bigger, less voids.
