”I am bored” -die

I’m in the process of making a bit larger laser cutting project, and I had to do some testing about cutting tolerances for it. Instead of just wasting materials, I designed a die for the kids. It is to be used during those “I’m bored…” -moments. The die has some better and some worse options….

Question Block from Super Mario
