I’ve had my Glowforge for MONTHS, but just used it for the first time yesterday. It’s a long story, but I had it delivered to my science lab at the college where I teach, and it turns out there are no windows in the room (or the entire building for that matter) that actually OPEN so I could vent the thing. And I drive a 2-door Mustang, so there is no way it was fitting in the car to come home with me. I finally found a day when I could re-box the whole thing up, borrow my wife’s Prius-V, and get the thing back home to set it up and start laserin’.
After cutting the test ruler, and doing a quick design on a cardboard notebook cover, I engraved this celtic knot onto a cheap $5 box from Michaels. (speed 600/52%). I have a HUGE list of projects I want to do now, and my wife and I are already planning an Etsy shop and a craft fair table in October.
