Beta Project: Our office sign project was a big success

#1

Until today I had a paper sign on my office door. At my small office I only have clients visit very rarely, and so have never wanted to pay for a professionally made door sign. But with the Glowforge I was able to cut one out and assemble it for myself.

I used 1/4" plywood as the sign base, and cut larger letters and my logo out of different colors of 1/8" hardwood. I inscribed the smaller letters into the plywood base. Initially I just scored the larger letters onto the plywood to act as guides for gluing the cut-out hardwood letters, but then I realized that if I inscribed the letters on the plywood I could inset the larger letters and logo that I had already cut out. Here is the finished product. I am pretty pleased with it.

Lovely sign!
Isn’t it great when a new tool suggests a new way of doing things?

That looks very snazzy! The etch fitting makes a huge difference–alignment can be such a pain. Awesome job :smiley:
