Issue #1

Soft wood made it difficult to get a good laser cut design, as the grain made the cut very uneven. The deep the cut the more obvious the grain was. One option is to sand the grain out after the laser cut.

Given that i want to stick my illustrations on the sides of the cubes i need to make an indent so that the sticker of my illustration wont peel off. Again the grain left a very uneven indent, which would need to be sanded down.

Issue #2

The cubes are all cut to 7cm approximately but there is some variation, not much – maybe a few mill. This make it difficult to get an even indent, making the boarder around the sticker look uneven.
