There is a new product out there Glowforge which could make this possible at home! You can cut wood, leather, etch glass, cut felt...so many interesting applications. If you get a chance flip through their galleries because there are already so many amazing things this printer has made...
I want a Glowforge so bad! Meanwhile, I think last year I read about a makers group in St. John's that has a laser in their collection of tools. I may need to further investigate...
If you want one too, you can sign up for their mailing list to get this awesome tool 1/2 off.
"The 3D laser printer that makes beautiful things, quickly.
Our first Glowforges will be half price.
We don't want you to miss out."
