One thing that the Glowforge does not allow that is much more my working style is to try and modify taking advantage as you discover things and modifying as you go. You either do it or not, there is no real “modify as you go”. I would have made it smaller, but by that point it already was. Also, any decorating will have to wait till the next one.
I was experimenting with tiny fingers and that went well. I also had to come up with handles and the first try there did not come out well, and so had to make new handles (the failed ones are on top of the box to show the finger holes that are unseen at the bottom of the handles. I would also add more and longer hinges, but that too needs planning before you even understand how they work.
I had planned for many fancy pieces to hold the tools, but they will be built later and added to this or the next one. however for all that it looks better than the plastic one that was stolen.
