Realizing that I’m actually going to get one of these things reasonably soon and that I had nowhere in the house for this thing to live, I’ve embarked on a fun project to build some new custom table/shelving/desk furniture for my office.
I’ve just completed the first stage of the build (the Glowforge table itself), and just wanted to share. As a web dev/programmer by trade, it feels good to make physical objects for once in my life, rather than virtual Looking forward to many more physical builds once the laser arrives!
Top is reclaimed California redwood framing timbers from a salvage yard in San Gregorio, CA. Framing is standard 1/2" gas pipe - all painted with Rustoleum Oiled Bronze metallic spray paint. End caps are just rusty old angle-irons I got for free that I just sanded down and painted to match.
