I took an engineering fabrication course at the local college and I was learning how to use this awesome laser cutter.

We can make whatever we want! Being an artist and trying to make the best of the situation, I made some cool things like the sock blocker and with the vinyl cutter I made the nifty window sign for my car.

My latest project is a needle gauge.

I use Corel Draw software to get everything right and send it to the laser cutter.
It is still a WIP because I keep I tweaking the design and…. sometimes I forget to reverse the type, so some of it is readable and some of it is wrong, like a mirror.

Thus I have some prototypes up on my etsy site, in the clearance section. If you want a good inexpensive needle gauge and don’t mind that there are some boo boos on it, then grab one of these…

ps. I just started “Twittering
I’m going to use this to announce some specials, tips, and sales… stop by and follow me for the quickest way to get more info. www.twitter.com/7yaks

There should be a button on the right that will take you there.

I’ll let everyone know how the project turns out…

til next time.
