I have quite a bit of repetitious fretwork to cut in thin(ish) ply, and was thinking of getting it laser cut professionally to save time with my fretsaw. Has anyone had any experience in this, and is it economic for hobby use?

well

Laser cutting is OK but bear in mind that the edges will be burnt, more so in very small areas,so applying any finish could be a problem, normally we would stack cut 3 or 4 at a time, the thinner the board the higher the stack cut.

That said Laser cutting of course somewhat defies the "handmade" factor
