Here’s some shots of my first laser cut pendant light. I created a new ‘circle design’ in vector, and adapted it to work in a ‘semi-circle’ panel insert for the lamp. I did go through a few trial and error tests to get the slot/insert tight and stable, but only really have these pics below of the final piece.
I think it turned out pretty cool, and I learned a lot about what I want to do next.

It’s funny. When I see a new Made on a Glowforge posting, I usually pop it open, and scroll down to see what the item is, before returning to the top to read about it. Often, I will think to myself that this looks like the work of so and so. Half the time I am right. And half the time, it is someone else’s work with whom I have not yet had the pleasure of studying. So many very talented people are on here using the GF in different, aesthetically inspiring ways!
This is truly stunning! I love lights anyway, but this one is so unique. I wonder if people would be blinded if it was made of acrylic! Thanks so much for sharing this with all of us. You have every right to feel very proud of that.
