Plastics contain nasty chemicals that can be harmful even prior to the disposal process. On the other hand, wood is completely natural and biodegradable. What could be healthier for your family?

From the Woodmarvels website FAQ "For each and every copy of the model that you cut using YOUR tool(s), you must buy a license from WoodMarvels.com, even if they are to be given as a present. So if your child wants two Medieval Castles, then you need to buy the EPS/DXF/PDF file twice."
This absolutely defeats the purpose of buying a pattern book, with the author stating you are not allowed to use the patterns in the book, without expending more funds even for personal use. Even the commercial use requires a yearly site license and an expense per model cut.
My advise to anyone interested in the book, is to just look at the models on the web and skip this book completely. If you want the model, you still have to buy a license from him even if you bought the book.
The book title is :"WoodMarvels.com, Volume 2: Laser Cutting Plans "
If you have to buy the plans separate, why buy the book? seems like false advertising to me.
The plans are COOL, but I can't cut them, and yet the book is dominated by them. What exactly did my gifter pay for?
On to the book(s)(I got all of them). I'm in the process of finding a laser cutter and picked up all of Jon's books when my search brought them up on Amazon. Wow, really, really sophisticated and creative designs. These aren't the sort of throw away, overly simple constructions that you'd expect to typically run across-there is some real creativity going on here. I'm an industrial designer,illustrator and classically trained painter, model maker and craftsman. I work both in traditional media and digitally, so I am well aware of the work that went into each of these designs. From the simple vintage style pull toys to the intricate moving machines featured in the book, ANY would be worthy of producing and, certainly, I cannot imaging better idea books for giving advanced, much less beginner, cnc and laser hobbyists a great platform for how to think about using their tool. Go to Jon's site and check it out for yourselves. My work can be found at robertstotts.com (so you can see that I'm not just a shill reviewer):-).
