I got limited wood veneer about 1mm thick to make own laminate cut with
laser. Let me know where to download the dxf file (or whatever), to try
make something. My guess is that if its got curved surfaces, a wooden
mold would also have to be made from laminates to allow the laminates to
be clamped and set into their final shape.
(Veneer is dirt cheap but container shipment costs about double the
value of the contents inside.)
