This item begins as an ordinary plywood board. It gets cut to the desired size, finely sanded and then placed under the laser cutter, where our own custom-made-through-sweat-and-tears template is loaded.

This is all done manually – so all of those small imperfections hint that even though it’s laser cut, there are human hands that took over.
If you want to build this: two chunks of 2×4 that were each 20″ long were cut. These were then ripped into 14 strips, which were eventually cut in half. Of these 28 total pieces, 18 were used for hexagonal and 10 were used for pentagonal tubes.
