Customer Spotlight: Tabletop Things
I started Tabletop Things about 5 1/2 years ago. I play a lot of Dungeon & Dragons and I had a need for a miniature ship for one of our adventures. I needed something practical for gameplay but also wanted it to look amazing. My brother-in-law had a BOSSLaser and was kind enough to let me try it out, so I started designing my first ship in Adobe Illustrator. It came out great and I was hooked, so I bought my first laser, the LS1420. “Cut” to 5 years later I’m now selling all kinds of ships, tokens, dice boxes, terrain tiles and more for use in a variety of tabletop roleplaying games.
I generally stick with hardwood, plywood, canvas, leather and occasionally acrylic. When creating a product I try to make as many parts as possible on the laser. Our ships and tokens use a combination of staining and laser engraving passes to create that multi-tone veneer-like style.
I bought and sold the LS1420 and the LS1630, and currently own the LS3655. Pre-Covid I was running all 3 machines all day long 5 days a week, but things are still slow to come back and I currently only have the need for the one big machine. The thing I love most about BOSS is the customer service. Every issue I’ve ever had was addressed in record time to keep me up and running.
