The Blacknose laser wood cutting machine engraves and cuts a variety of different materials.
My stepdad John had the idea for the business back in 2013 when he first saw the laser printer at a model engineering show where Martin and Dominic from JustAddSharks were exhibiting it.
After months of discussion, we purchased and collected our new laser machine mid 2014 from the guys at JustAddSharks. I started out somewhat tentatively as I learned to use the software and the machine but within months I was producing designs that people actually liked! It was such a great feeling to be able to offer unique and personalised gifts and I have continued to design new things on a weekly basis, really exploring the lasers capabilities. Some items have been hugely popular whereas others haven’t worked at all but it’s been a learning curve every step of the way and I am very proud to be able to show off some of my designs on this website.
Shadow Wood Designs is a small business ran by myself, Becky McTamney and I specialise in designing items that can be personalised. I mainly work with 3mm birch plywood and am continually producing new designs. From cute little boxes to wedding guest books, I have a range of items available for sale on eBay.
