Making a Model with the Laser Cutter

This is the first time I’ve used a laser cutter, and it was amazing.  What would have taken me countless hours to produce by hand using a jigsaw took about 15 minutes on the laser cutter – and I wasn’t even there while it was cutting.




Litmus for Landscape

Does it empower the systems of nature from the soil up?

Does it appear beautiful to Man, bee, bird, and wolf?
