Listen to a Laser-Cut Record Made of Wood

Software engineer and tech editor Amanda Ghassaei created a laser cut record from wood. What the project lacks in sound quality, it makes up for in terms of design. The lo-fi records were cut using a laser printer. She experimented with a number of wood materials—even acrylic—before finding the best results with maple.

Ghassaei’s previous work includes instructions for using a 3D printer to transform an mp3 into a physical record. This time, she wanted to create a project that incorporated digitally fabricated records with more accessible and affordable materials.

She provides the codes for making your own—you can listen to more songs and samples of the records on her Instructables page.
