That's an awfully big laser cutter. Does it have to be lasered, or would any process that gets that shape work?

EDIT: What I'm driving at is that it's probably easier to find a table saw with a competent operator than a laser of that size. Probably cheaper too.

Your'e right. I should have added CNC Router or similarly Saw Cut.
Dimensional accuracy is the key aspect.
Thanks for input/advice.

This is a job for CNC router. You could have it waterjet too. Or have a good cabinet shop cut it for you.

If I was making that then to be honest I'd do it by hand. Measure out with a pencil and a ruler. Clamp a straight edge parallel to where you want each edge cut and run a hand-held router along it manually. Maybe cut it out roughly with a jigsaw first to make it easier to handle and less for the router to cut. CNC routing would be fine but it's probably not really necessary for such a simple shape. I don't think you can get a nice square edge with a laser for that thickness.
