It is cute just wayyyyy smaller than I expected. I thought it would look good hanging up on a wall but its almost small enough to be a tree ornament.

The Machinery, for all your lasercut plans

Marc, a former graphic designer who always had a love for good design, paper, wood and books, wanted to start a business that would combine his interests and where he could both make his own products as well as work with other designers and creative people.
After some intensive brainstorming, thinking and dreaming, the plan for a lasercut business was born!

He (with his father and father-in-law) rebuild the garden barn into a little lasercut palace. Kim, Marc's wife who's a talented dutch illustrator, designed the corporate style. The Laser Machine - yes with capitals, it is a big and impressive machine ;-) - was delivered shortly after and the work could begin.

The Machinery is divided in three:
1. Our Etsy Shop: with our own designs as well as collaborations with other dutch designers.
2. Online service: you can upload your designs at (in dutch for now) and The Machinery lasercuts or engraves (we can do that too!) it and the finished products will be send to you.
3. Machine rent: you can rent our laser machine per day part at our studio, close to Amsterdam.
