I have a friend that is a beekeeper. I made her this set of cork coasters and the holder in the shape of a bee hive.
That’s a cute idea! (And very realistic…I thought it was an actual hive until I read the description.)
Nice designs, well executed. Your original art?
I designed the hive, all the coasters are designs I bought online.
That is a cool hive, and the coasters are just icing on the cake! I guess the bees don’t mind the burned wood smell.
The bee box holder puts it over the top. Well done!
The beehive holder makes it extra special.
Very personal gift for a friend, well done
If I could click on the heart ten times more I would. These are so beautiful!
Lovely work, and while allergic (15 mins, epipen, etc.) Truly appreciate the need for them.
Love the beehive house for the coasters. At first I thought it was a real bee hive.
Why aren’t they hexes?
Bees have enough to deal with without being hexed
I wouldn’t have thought of the bee hive to hold the coasters…that is really the finishing touch! My future father-in-law is going to bee making classes or something like that. His wife bought him the supplies at Christmas last year. Would be fun to make something like that for him, but knowing me and my ever growing list of projects (and way too little time)…I might get some coasters done.
Could you share your settings for the cork etching? I seem to burn it too much or maybe it’s larger cork and it just seems too uneven…just haven’t been too impressed with our tries but yours looks professional. I have a Pro, what do you have? Thanks for any info…oh shoot this is the Made on a Glowforge section (not beyond the manual); would you mind messaging me??
There’s been quite a bit of discussion of cork over in Beyond the Manual – you’ll find some good settings to try over there, if you look.
I love the idea of keeping them in a little hive!! So fun!
