My favorite was the leather backpack I made for my son and his wife with the engravings of where they met, where he asked her to marry him, where they were married, and, their first home. It also had Italy/France as that’s where they honeymooned. But in all fairness, I used @jrbryant1 example to do this!!
Last year I made Christmas gifts for my brother’s new family. They each told me something they liked and I made an ornament for them. My favorite is the one for my brother and his girlfriend. They call each other Superman and Wonder Woman. The ornament is held together with tiny magnets and can be hung separately or together.
Wow! So much creative energy and inspiration here.
When I first wandered into this forum back in 2015, it occurred to me, this is a special group of people - everyone gathered here is drawn to this tool for the same reason. This machine would further our creative ability. I knew then I had found my people.
My best projects are always gifts for others. Having the ability to customise them is the best.
One of my favorites was one of the simplest. I had some of my father’s stuff from his barn. I took a shelf from a piece he had hanging up in barn. Cut it down to size, then engraved, cut holes, and stained it. I stitched to a basket from Target and added some goodies. I also had some proofgrade veneer to stick to a bottle opener.
Sorry - I’m just liking everything here - no way I could pick! AWESOME work all!
My stuff is boring woodworking stuff - I use the GF to do a lot of embellishments like trees on frames, or precision cuts for small parts that I don’t want to dare try on the bandsaw. Posting those things doesn’t seem like it fits with this as they’re just parts!
