It seems like I’m always using my Glowforge to make things for other people and I decided that it was finally time to make something for myself. So, I combined my favorite shape and favorite colors to make a piece to hang on my wall. This is 5 layers of 1/8” baltic birch each painted with a different color, then stacked together to create the final ensemble. The finished piece is 14” x 21” (see the starbucks gift card for scale)
Really looks great, and yes sometimes we have to do something for us
Beautiful! I love how you alternated the cuts along the different pieces to make it seamless.
Wow! That’s absolutely stunning! And I love your color choices as well!
Did you color the wood yourself? It looks fantastic!
You’ve created such depth, great design!
Thanks! Yes I did color the wood using alcohol ink that I made. It was super easy: 1/4 - 1/2 cup of 91% rubbing alcohol in a jar, then crack open a sharpie and drop the ink insert into the jar. Use a sponge paint brush to paint it on and it dries almost instantly. The great thing about it is that it still allows some of the grain to show through. (just make sure you can open a window or do it outside)
Great job, extending the hexagon love!
That is freaking cool!!!
Great design and I love your color combination!
Great job! Every once in awhile, we must make something for ourselves.
