Quick post here as I just got my first order cut at SendCutSend, and I highly recommend them – it’s a great way to take a Glowforge idea and make it in a range of metals quickly and easily.
This project: our new garage has 2x6 construction, so we have deep walls that are begging for storage shelves. I wanted to do something quick and easy that would hold a lot of different stuff. After knocking out some cedar wood temporary shelves I thought meh, we can do better. So I cut a range of prototypes for a folding metal shelf with tool storage holes out of paperboard until I got to a design that functioned the way I wanted. After “installing” my paperboard versions and confirming the tools fit, I ordered two from SendCutSend. The guys were great, they actually contacted me and recommended a better folding hinge design than what I had submitted, I resubmitted directly to the help team and five days later the products arrived. Worked perfectly the first time .
I’ve installed the first two and am going to order another 12 with a modified design so I can clear all the small stuff off my work bench and get it stored in the walls.
