One of the great things about laser cutters is mass customisation, you can make lots of the same thing but customise them all to be personalised. This was just a standard bird box we bought from a store (because I didn't have time to make a whole one) but we were able to engrave names and dates on it quickly for a diamond anniversary present. The Z axis on the laser cutter drops down low enough to get the whole box under the cutting head so the process was relatively simple.

It’s our sad news to announce that we did not successfully attract enough backers to go forward with further development and production of the vanillabox laser cutter. We’d like to thank all those who did back us (you’ve been emailed separately) and to everyone who has supported us through emails, tweets and interest during this project. As of right now, we are unsure what future the vanillabox has.
