MiTi012: Laser Etched Beer Glass

Etch into glass using a laser cutter!

After choosing from a wide selection of designs, you'll use a rotary attachment tool for the laser cutter, which allows you to etch into cylindrical items...perfect for mugs, glasses, baseball bats, and more! Next, you'll observe as the laser etches the design into your pint glass.

You'll leave with your very own etched pint glass. Use it to enjoy a cold brew, or give it to a friend!

This Make-it, Take-it workshop is open to both members and non-members of TechShop.

Note: This is not a Safety and Basic Usage class. If you want to make more customized items, check out our Laser Rotary Attachment SBU class, offered regularly.
