Customer Spotlight: Tabletop Things

About Us

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.

Our Process

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.

The Machines

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.
