On a recent evening in a workshop in Anchorage’s Spenard neigborhood, a group of people gathered around a laser cutter to chart the machine’s progress engraving a chunk of wood.With some assistance from instructor Jess Austin, Andrew Cater pulled up his design on a nearby computer and went through a checklist: Check the water. Turn on the water pump and the air. Check the laser cutter bed for obstructions.

It was made as part of a grant-funded laser-cutting class at Anchorage MakerSpace.
