Laser Cut Trees

On June 11, 2016 by jw

I can never pass up an opportunity to work with the amazing artist and sculpture Kiel Johnson. So when he asked me if I could help him cut out a forest of trees to cover a 23 foot long installation, I fired up the laser. I took a few pictures of his drawings and traced out the tool paths in Adobe Illustrator. I ended up cutting about 5000 trees on my small 8 x 11 inch laser cutter. I had to keep adding ice to prevent the laser tube from overheating.
