If you’re a serious artisan who’s looking to raise the quality of your products to the next level, it may be time to invest in a laser cutter, a software-controlled machine whose slim but powerful laser beam is capable of carving intricate designs and patterns through a range of materials. The versatility and sophistication of these devices come at a price, of course; you’ll probably be shelling out hundreds or even thousands, so choose your model wisely. You’ll need a well-ventilated workspace (industrial-strength laser cutters emit fumes), a compatible operating system through which to upload your designs, and, in some cases, internet access. We’ve assembled our top picks below.
