I have been making tons of projects with my xTool P2 Laser Machine. It’s the brand new machine from Makeblock/xTool and is a powerful 55W CO2 laser cutter and engraver. I already own an xTool M1, so I was excited to see how the P2 outperformed it and my Glowforge Pro.

Acrylic Keychains

Retro keychains have been so popular over the last couple of years! You can engrave inexpensive acrylic keychains, or you can cut your own from sheets of cast acrylic.

And if you don’t want to use acrylic, you can make retro or vintage inspired keychains from wood, too!

Of course, you don’t have to make a retro design, there are tons of different keychains that you can make! This one was constructed from several different pieces of pastel acrylic:

Engraved Coasters

Coasters are also an easy gift idea that you can personalize for a location, wedding, or other occasion. You can engrave slate, glass, leather, wood, or cork, or you can cut pieces to make your own from scratch.

I love these slate coasters with custom designs that I drew in the Procreate app.

I also make a quick set of coasters using the score function and a few of my favorite cities.

Wooden Signs

Signs are one of the most popular crafts to make with an xTool laser machine. Wood signs are too large for most other craft machines, and you don’t have to use craft vinyl. Laser cut signs are more durable and professional looking.

Acrylic Signs

Just like wooden signs, acrylic signs are a very popular trend, especially these painted clear acrylic signs for bridal showers and weddings.

Cutting Boards and Charcuterie Trays

Engraved wooden cutting boards or tray are another popular laser craft for holidays, weddings and personalized gifts. You can purchase inexpensive boards and engrave them with quotes, designs, or names.

Laser Cut Greeting Cards

Have you ever thought of sending laser cut greeting cards? Me either, until I got a laser cutter! You can make a wooden card for any holiday, like this valentine that I made:

You can use everything from wood, paper, and acrylic to make laser cut greeting cards and even gift card holders.

Laser Cut Greeting Cards & Gift Card Holders:

Acrylic Nightlights

These nightlights are extremely popular gifts for holidays and birthdays. You can personalize them with names, pictures, or other designs! You can purchase the nightlight bases and then add a custom piece of acrylic to it.

Laser Cut and Engraved Home Decor

Just as with laser cut signs, other home decor items are really popular. I have made and constructed items like earring holders:

and I have also engraved pre-purchased home decor and storage items, like this acrylic pencil cup:

You can’t engrave thick objects like this pencil cup with other laser machines. You can get the xTool Riser Base, which allows you to engrave items that are up to 8.5″ thick!

Personalized Tags

In addition to birthday gifts, personalized holiday gift tags are really popular around Christmas. I have made several versions, but this is one of my favorites.

Tags don’t have to be just for gifts! You can make personalized luggage tags too!

Engraved Tumblers

Have you seen engraved stainless steel coated tumblers? They are made with a rotary attachment like the RA2 Pro for the xTool P2. It’s the an accessory for your machine that will handle cylindrical objects like tumblers and glasses. And it’s definitely a project I can’t wait to make!

Custom Stamps

I think that custom rubber stamps and stamp holders are a really under rated project for laser machines! You can make them for your business, holidays, or scrapbooking.

I hope you were inspired to find a new project to make with your xTool laser! Let me know in the comments what else you’d like to see!
