Our fabrication team thrives on bringing your ideas to life. No job is too big, small or crazy and we have the tools and capability to build almost any creation!

Laser Cutting

Our laser cutters are a versatile and cost effective way to cut and engrave wood, acrylic, leather and paper any size up to 48" by 96". We can also engrave those materials and others metal and glass. The maximum thickness we can cut is 3/8". For safety reasons, the laser cutter cannot cut be used to cut PVC and other vinyl derivatives., polycarbonate, HDPE, polystyrene foam, polypropylene foam, fibreglass, or carbon fibre composite. Typical turnaround time is 7 days unless it is a rush order (see below). We will include a turnaround time in our quote.

CNC Machining

Our Shopbot CNC router can cut MDF, plywood, hardwood, plastics and aluminium up to 4'x8'. It's great for furniture, signs, and anything that has a 2D profile. Unlike the laser, it cannot do sharp internal corners and these generally have to be 1/4" radius or greater.
