Design Before and After Glowforge: Christmas Tree Set

I have wanted a Glowforge since I first saw the anouncement, but last year before I got my GlowForge I attempted a design and used the limited tools I had. An old palet, a jig saw and some paint. It was a Christmas Tree Set, and I am pretty happy with how it turned out with the limited resources I had. Now it’s Christmas time again and I want to remake my design so I set out last night to create the new Christmas Tree Set, with my new Glow Forge. So here is 2.0 of my Christmas Tree Set, I tried to give it the same shape as the orginal but wanted to bring in some of the design elements I have done with my sleigh, reindeer, and christmas tray so they could all tie in together. I incorporated an inlay you could either do in wood or acrylic. I used some frosted acrylic. I also added the Christmas Ball so their could be personalization if wanted. What do you think?

I think it all looks amazing. Even the “less fancy” trees from last year.

All of your designs are beautiful.

Thank you posting your first design. My wife wants some “rustic” trees to match a table center piece she bought and they give me a great start to making something she would like.
