When a boy gets a new toy it's a guarantee he'll push it to it's limits. He'll build the tallest Lego tower possible, race his RC car through the deepest puddle, ride his bike off the highest curb, it's just what young boys do. When he grows up this doesn't change much. Really, the only difference is his toys.
Similar to Tom at Will it Blend?, I've been seeing what cuts and what doesn't with my laser. I've been cutting and engrave anything I can get my hands on, with mixed success. To keep track of the materials and settings I've tried, I put together a Google Docs spreadsheet. This should serve as a good reference for future projects and a way to share my work with others.
