I like the concept you are developing...

The next size up is generally 12 X 18 X 3

amaz0n and/or fleebay are your friend, ie; "surface plate"

One could also construct a mold and cast with Portland Cement Concrete. The casting may include fasteners as needed. Embed select mineral aggregate in the surface and grind to expose them. Search "concrete counter top"

If we can get together some people who can help with the production process (like someone who can make the base out of cement or someone who can machine acrylic) we can start a "group buy". I might have someone who can machine the aluminum "top plate" and wood "main body"

The top plate can be waterjet from .25" aluminum.
The main body can be machined from hardwood. But I will have to find a source for 2" thick hardwood.

As for the base, copper is expensive, that 12 x 18 granite is a good alternative. Not sure how we can drill holes in it to mount the laser mechanism.

The rest could be cut with a grinder and diamond disk.

We can make something like this that utilizes the 9x12 granite.
I can supply the 2 top aluminum plates and wood main body.
The granite base will have to be ordered and drilled by yourself.
