Getting an early start this year!

For once, I’m actually getting a head start on holiday projects! Here’s a design by Ivan Bilous from his Etsy shop…


Pretty happy how this turned out in 1/8” GoofGrade ply from Amazon. :sunglasses:

I love Ivan’s designs. There is so much detail in them. You did a nice job cutting and assembling this one. They take quite a while to put together.

Thanks! This project required about a sheet and a half of 10x18" ply and 90 minutes to print on my Basic. Weeding around the extensive scores took another 45 minutes and final assembly took about 30 minutes.

He really does! His assembly instructions, in the style of Lego/IKEA are excellent, and I was surprised to find that he included design files pre-sized for materials in many thicknesses, as well as GF-specific layouts for 1/8". :smiley:

That turned out amazing! Good for you for getting an early start on the holidays!

This is a great design feature for us end users. I still have trouble remembering to adjust kerf, etc., for different materials. His designs are always amazing.

Welcome to the community!

That particular design was designed by someone else, but I use Adobe Illustrator and Affinity Design for all my designs.

A lot of people use Inkscape (free). Whichever you prefer, you’ll definitely want to become proficient with a vector-based design program.
