You will notice that it is about 2am.
If you recall, my Forge was delayed about a week - UPS sent it to the wrong sorting facility. Well, it arrived today and when we went to pick it up, we were very relieved it wasn’t a mattress! Anyway, we had another event to attend this evening, so we didn’t get home with the Forge until around 11pm.
Box looks like it had been through a few sorting facilities… only one handle left, most of the tape ripped, crushed edges and such.
This was my favorite part:
Opened it up and all is well!
My space is still a work in progress. Essentially my laser-desk is a couple of Ikea shelves with a piece of steel sitting on top of it. Eventually I am planning on building a frame around the steel and a raised work area… but I had all of three days, or so I thought, when I originally anticipated at least a few weeks… so I had to get something ready asap!
Power (had to install a new grounded outlet - The forge has it’s own dedicated circuit!) and vent through the wall are all ready to go… The crumb tray was getting lonely without it’s laser-home!
Got it all set up and fired up. The forge is certainly strong in this one!!!

Burned out a Gift of Good Measure as well:
And I spent some time designing and cutting the (pretty much) mandatory escutcheon!
Ladies and gentlemen, I give you, MEEPLEFORGE!!!
Now… time for some sleep!
