Ian --

I don't have a laser yet (it should ship April 14) but I have been spending my evenings snuggling up to Corel Draw. Last night I was just toying with shapes, and made an egg shaped oval with just two nodes.

With the Bezier tool click and drag twice (two nodes). Be sure to click and drag, otherwise you get a straight line between the two nodes. Click on 'auto-close curve.' Select both nodes and click on 'convert to curves,' then click on 'make node symmetrical.'

With the resulting node handles you can make the shape as perfectly egg shaped as you want.

Good luck.

Or for a ready made one, look at the Festive font.

Ian, here's one I used to make egg-ornaments for my niece last year, she painted them & hung them on a tree.
