Because a fly was annoying me at work today


#1

Round two tomorrow fly, and I’m coming prepared!


#2

That… Sir…Is Hilarious…

Good Luck! May the SPLAT be with you.

The fly is no match for a frontal cortex and opposable thumbs. :sunglasses:

Yeah, I’m a :nerd:

Very cool!

Tonight a fly was in the house … oh no! Buzzing around like crazy. We went to bed, and my husband left the door open while I had stopped off to take care of something. I go in and said, oh no! You let the fly in! I pulled out the swatter to eliminate him post-haste. Whew! You know you won’t sleep if a fly is in the room.


#6

I hope he survived - the husband, that is.
:upside_down_face:


#7

Why … he’s the sweetest person I know … would never swat him! :heart_eyes:


#8

Is that leather you made that from?


#9

Yes. I cut the handle on my table saw from a piece of oak and then drilled it, although I’m sure I could have cut the holes with the Glowforge. The swatter is made from 2mm veg tanned leather I picked up at the leather store and it’s dyed brown. The leather color looks better this morning as it has dried. Those were the only rivets I had in the workshop. If I ever make more of these I’ll grab some brass or copper rivets. Decision Support is the dept I’m in so I had to add our logo… :slight_smile:

I am so pleased with the ease of embellishing something at my whim. :sunglasses:


#11

Hey! @dhanvinddvs! Where have you been? The forum has been missing your sense of humor!


#12

This is excellent! Love the leather.

#14

YES! That is awesome!!! don’t think I would’ve ever thought to use a laser cutter to make a fly swatter, but now I will.


#15

Adding your department’s name makes this fly swatter that much cooler. This deserves to be hung up on a wall (after having the fly guts cleaned off). My thoughts go out to the fly today!


#16

So, thinking about this… why clean the fly guts when that’s all the trophy you’ll get?! BUT, what am i thinking here… put the swatter BACK into the forge and start making hash marks for each kill.

Teach those flys a lesson!

Oh, and what do you call a Fly with no wings?

A WALK! :joy::rofl:
