I recently learned how to use the laser cutter in the basement of St. George, Utah Public Library. Makerspace is a fantastic “free” resource for all Washington County residents with a library card. Joe Larson is there to answer most questions when learning how to use machines in the Makerspace. Last week, I tested my newly acquired skill of using a laser engraver. Using scrap material, I laser engraved some scrap acrylic, scrap plywood, and my phone case! All the pieces turned out quite well, and I am very impressed with the results. Check out the Makerspace for all your making needs including:
- 3D printing
- laser engraving/laser cutting
- CNC cutting / CNC router
- bandsaw and other woodworking
