You’re limited by materials and cutter capabilities of course, which is why jewelry and small toys predominate at the moment, but can’t you just see this a few years down the line, when cutter technology lets you create full blown furniture, appliances and equipment? Go on, open your mind a little…

 So long as you can draw a shape and take a photo, you can make something with Photomake. Here’s the process you follow. Once you’ve created an image of your design, head to Photomake and upload it, choose a material, get an instant price to have it made, confirm your order, then click to make. We’ll have your design made and delivered to your door. (You can track its progress in your online MyPonoko account, by receiving email updates or by grabbing an RSS feed.)
