This was posted on the MFA blog and I just thought it was so awesome that I had to post it here. Ponoko is a website where you can sign up for free, download their templates for free and use Illistrator, or someother vector drawing program to design, jewelry, furniture, whatever. Then, you upload your files to their site, pick a material (mostly acrylic and wood), pay with a credit card and they will laser cut your design and ship it to you. You can design flat pieces that can then be assembled. You can also sell your work through their site or even take someone's existing design and customize it. It's really awesome, I suggest you check it out.
