Tools and Materials to DIY Jewelry Organizer

A Laser Cutter

The best machine for making DIY items, including jewelry organizers, is a laser cutter and engraver. A laser machine is powerful enough to cut materials. It produces laser beams that increase the temperature of the object upon contact with the material. The temperature of the object is increased, and it merely takes fractions of a second to heat the material up to the melting point and boiling point.

Due to high temperature, the materials change from solid to gaseous instantly. Therefore, a cavity, called engraving, is created. If the laser beams have passed through the object, the material will be cut into pieces. Everything is automated; you just need to import the design, and the machine will do the rest.

There are different types of laser technologies available, and all of them have a distinct capability of cutting materials. The most affordable option is a diode laser. It can cut wood, acrylic (excluding blue and transparent acrylic), paper, fabric, cardboard, and various other materials. The second option is a CO2 laser cutter, which is more powerful and expensive than a diode laser. It also cut and engrave a wider range of non-metals. 

You can use a CO2 or diode laser for this purpose. Both are great for cutting and engraving various non-metals. You can choose the right one according to your budget and requirements.


You need compatible materials to make jewelry organizers. Mostly, you will see wooden and acrylic jewelry organizers in online stores and marketplaces. According to your design and the laser machine’s compatibility, you need to choose the right size and thickness of the material.

Design Files

Design files are necessary to cut the desired pattern or design. The machine follows that pattern and does everything according to the information.

If you are a designer, you can design your unique products. You only need to make those designs in Adobe Illustrator, Inkscape, CorelDraw, or any other software. Once the design is ready, convert the file into a compatible format that the laser machine accepts. The second option is getting the designs from free and paid websites. Check various free websites where you can easily find laser-cut files. You can try 3 Axis, Ponoko, DesignBundles, etc. But the designs of the free websites are usually common. The designs can also be purchased from Etsy, Vecteezy, and similar websites, where you can find tons of designs that can be used for commercial purposes.

Get the laser-cut file for the design you like, and you are now ready to make your own DIY jewelry organizer.
