So literally since the day I first purchased the Glowforge, one of the projects on my list was to make a wall hanging to hold all of my super dangly earrings. In the past I had a simple holder of window screen in a picture frame, but pssh… I could make it so much cooler with a laser!
The idea I had in my head forever was a giant ampersand with holes in it for the earrings, but I could never really figure out how a good mechanism to hang it or even how to keep the earrings from completely camouflaging what the shape was. So after some googling I discovered an earring holder that had an art deco screen mounted on a wood tray, and thought, hey I could make a pattern with the ampersands! So I did:
Thanks to @rbtdanforth for the free hook idea, I modified it a little but it definitely solved my problem of not wanting to have too complicated of a hanger system.
I found different colors of acrylic at a hardware store, so I used translucent white for the front and for the spacer ‘washers’, and frosted light blue for the back plate.
I help you, Daddy!
Fully loaded, and I love it
Hooray to the end of clutter! (And dust, haha).
Stunning! I love how you turned the clutter into art. (And your assistant is adorbs!)
Really great idea! And it looks really nice too.
Clever use of Type art. And I’m with you on clutter clearing.
What a neat design! And I like that earring. And that other one. And that one. And…
Glad you found the hooks useful! I like the change but just a bit more and make them dragon heads…
I actually thought about turning them into flamingos, but was afraid the shape wouldn’t fit in the slot!
So awesome! Great design and execution.
I love this! Pre-Glowforge I made one out of plastic needlepoint canvas. This is SOOO much better!
Plus lots of extra points for the cue-ball bald baby! Mine sported that look until she was almost 2!
I was bald until 2 as well… I don’t have much hope for my son! Though he’s getting a bit of fringe, it’s so blonde it’s nearly invisible!
