Living in southern Minnesota, I do not have a lot of options to obtain my favorite eating utensils, chopsticks. Asian culture permeates a little easier with the west coast, compared to the upper midwest, from what I’ve gathered. And so, I thought to myself, what if I could just make my own!?
And then I thought a few other things. How would that even work? Is acrylic safe to eat from? Where did that walnut 1x1 I had go? A lathe might be the best tool for the job, but I have no access to one. How could I do it on GF? Would the image file just be a series of lines at less power towards the center (like a rainbow column) so it burned more on the sides to etch a curve?
Like @dan said once,(loosely, from memory) “once you have a laser, your thoughts change to ‘how can I cut this with a laser?’”.
So though it may be rather strange, what are your thoughts GF community? Could it be done? If so, how would you imagine it would work best?
From a bit of Google search I’ve determined that acrylic is ‘probably’ safe, but I would have access to some hardwoods too.
