Overly Organized Gardening – Laser cut garden labels

I don’t usually grow a lot of things from seed and almost ever edibles but along with many pandemic gardeners, I am branching out. I made these little garden labels out of 1/8th in baltic birch plywood. I also make some pins to hold down the chicken wire I use in the garden to defend from squirrels and cats.

For those interested here is the Adobe Illustrator file with the editable art. I cut these on at 100w C02 infrared laster at Ace Makerspace, using 55speed and 45 power for the cut and 600speed and 35 power for the etching. The file took about 23 min. to make the whole batch, with a cost of $7 for the laser time and about 4 dollars for the plywood.
