Laser Cut Wooden
Easter Egg cup

Step by step guide

We've designed this charming Easter egg cup in the shape of an Easter Bunny. To create this sample we have used alder wood but you can also use plywood when laser cutting your design.


Preparation

Required material:

  • 3mm alder wood or poplar plywood
  • 1 Easter egg

Trotec laser machine used:

  • Speedy 300
  • 60 watts
  • 1.5 inch lens

Tips:

Using a laser cutting table prevents beam reflections on the back of your material.


Step by Step

Step 1: Laser engraving and cutting

Open the Easter Bunny design file (which you can find here) and send it to the laser machine. Choose the following settings for laser engraving and cutting (and remember that depending on your machine, these parameters may differ):

Black (engraving) - power: 25 %, speed: 10 %, frequency: 500 dpi, Air assist on
Red (cutting) - power: 60 %, speed: 1 %, frequency: 1000 Hz, Air assist on, correction: 10


Step 2: Assembling the parts

Once all the parts are cut you can assemble them. To finish your egg cup you can paint it or leave it with a natural wood finish. Follow our detailed but easy-to-understand instructions for assembly.
