Box with a Laser Tile Lid


For those of you who have cut laser tiles and weren’t sure what to do with them, I had the same dilemma with a tile i had made of my brother’s dog who passed away last summer. Wanted to send it to him, but not as a plain tile, since I wasn’t sure what he would be able to do with just a tile.

So I decided to make a box lid to accommodate it and incorporate it into a box.

I made two box files on, both without lids. I made one box just barely big enough to accommodate the laser tile and one about 3mm smaller so the lid box would slide over the regular box. added a couple of millimeters below the slots so it would be a deeper lid, created a lip piece to glue on top and cover the edges of the tile, and there you go.

I uploaded the cut file to free laser designs if anyone else would like to use it.

I would love this. My wife’s dog passed away a while back and she still misses it dearly. This would be an awesome surprise for her.


just packed it up to send to my brother later today at the post office. his birthday is on Friday, so that was the final kick in the pants to get it done.


Excellent idea!
The absolute love our pets engender in us.
(Paraphrasing) An old man said that every dog he had ever owned gave him a piece of its heart, and he returned the favor. And by the time he died his heart would be all dog, and he would see and love the world as they did.


I like that you only see a frame when you look at the photo … Great job!


Really nice solution. Thanks for sharing!


Lovely sentiment! and thanks for sharing…
