7 Layer Deer with Optional Layers

I’ve created my first multi-layered design with optional layers. I know there are a lot of people who love hunting out there, but there are others who do not. So, I’ve created a 7 layer deer design with optional layers. One version has a hunter tucked away in the corner, and the other is replaced with a cougar on the prowl.

This multi-layer deer stands at 14" high and 10.8" wide. Still capable of cutting in one pass on the Glowforge.
For my design and pictures, I used 1/4" maple, walnut, cherry, hickory and mahogany plywood.
This design is capable of creating both 1/4" and 1/8" cuts. Only difference is the small holes in the stand to accommodate the thickness of the wood.

Another great design, but where’s Bigfoot?

Ha ha ha. Maybe I’ll have to do a 3rd layer.

I think I need to make a bulk materials order… These are gonna take a few sheets… Is that an 8-sheet design? Or is there room to fit more than one part (or at least the base) on a sheet with another layer?

There is plenty of room in the remaining sheet to cut the base or other design. Unfortunately only 1 deer fit per sheet. My sheets are 19” x 12”. I put the base in the picture for a size comparison.

I love the care you took to consider that and create the separate layers!

The optional layer approach is an excellent upgrade for anyone looking to sell their designs. One or two additional options is probably best so buyers don’t have too many decisions because that tends to freeze up many people.

That, or only on every 100th one you make, since sightings still so rare :stuck_out_tongue_winking_eye:
