@afish this is looking really good. Where did you find the artwork for the utensil outlines?

I draw/trace it. first I take picture with my cell phone and load the pic into a vector editing program. there are lots of different softwares to choose from for vectors.  lightburn (laser software) does too but I only use that for basic laser function since I am faster with other programs, Iam more familiar with. Then I load the jpeg and start tracing it usually using the spline tool to draw the main shapes. Its actually a fair amount of work to turn one of these out between figuring out the drawer layout to make everything fit, photographing, tracing, drawing/manipulating the box. some of this is more complicated do to new kitchen and trying to figure out whats best where etc. plus still learning the laser but getting faster. the box today took me about the same time to make as the simple silverware tote.

100watt 2440 The material is 1/4sande ply its actual thickness is .205" or 5.2mm. the 100w is supposed to be able to handle 12mm but I havent tried yet. I have the cnc router for cutting the bigger stuff I wanted the laser for working with finer more detailed work and engraving which usually is thinner stock anyways. I bought the sande ply originally to practice on since its reasonably priced but it works so well im just sticking with it.  once all those tabs lock everything together its way stronger than needed.  Thats the real secret sauce otherwise it would be waaaaaay to flimsy. I think I could make an airplane out of this stuff.
