Nice work! How is the box put together? Miters, splines, bisquits? Looks like you are working with end grain on you joint. How deep will the laser cut? I have never played around with one so I am curious. Does to work like a CNC? Thanks for sharing.

thanks for comments,corners are mitered,top and bottom are screwed on so she can and her son’s ashes.I can cut a little over 1/4 ” operates like a cnc.I was debating between cnc router and the laser ,Picked the laser because I think you can get more detail.

Nice tribute box Bill. I love that grain wrap on the miters, and of course you can probably tell I’m partial to trees as a signature..
