I love our Glowforge, and seeing the cool and creative stuff that people are posting is a little intimidating. The things I make are more utilitarian. I bought some hook up wire in three different gauges for my various electronics projects. It came in a cardboard box that was pretty ‘meh’. I tried a couple different ways of storing it, and the boxes quickly got destroyed. So it started to look like this in my toolbox.
After rewinding the wire on the spools for at least the fourth time, I took some measurements and knocked together this design.
Some time with the glue and a rubber band later and I have three boxes that require intention to dispense the wire rather than have it all over.
I’ve reworked the top cover so the holes are more in line radially as the wire comes off, and engraved the wire gauge as well. I’ll post a picture once I get a chance to cut them.
(Hoping that I uploaded the pictures correctly.)
