Afetr finding my footing with the xTool D1 Pro 10w laser engraver, i set to actaully putting it to use enhancing my board game collection. My first — and deepest — wish was to cut my own 10mm custom meeples for Everdell. Plan B was to make custom engraved totems for Tzolk’in. Plan C involved some home decor for our new board game room.

i love it when a plan comes together.

Get your own xTool D1 Pro 10W Laser Cutter

The machine is definitely a hard sell for people like me, who live in Canada and have 8 months of winter to contend with. Running a laser cutter safely indoors is a tall order, and will cost you more in setup than the machine itself. But if you live in a warm place, or fanatasize (like i did) about smoking out the neighbourhood from your garage on a sunny Saturday, use this affiliate link they set me up with to check it out!
