« on: November 11, 2015, 09:14:07 PM »
I wrote up a tutorial on how to use Ponoko to laser cut and etch counters onto a variety of materials.

That looks really cool! I would love to try it eventually but I think for now it's probably best if I stick with Brant's patented foam-counter solution8)

The foam counter solution is awesome. It's exactly what I did. The only thing I'll do differently next time is use a rotary cutter instead of a shearing cutter.

For price it's hard to beat the foamie-print method.
