If you click on THIS LINK, it will take you to a Google Drive folder that contains a blank FABfiber Mini Frame Loom design for you to add your own in Illustrator if you so chose or cut directly on a laser cutter as is.
*** If you are going to make your own designs in Illustrator, keep in mind that it is more suitable to etch black-and-white line drawings than it is to etch anything shaded or colored. Vectors are best!

Where can I laser cut my Mini Frame Loom cut?
***As a result of membership fees and laser cut costs, we highly recommend combining the Mini Frame Loom with other FABfiber tools into a single file to make it as inexpensive as possible for fabricating multiple tools. ***
The Mini Frame Loom cut file will need to be cut from 1/8th inch MDF or plywood.
