My favorite thing to do on the Glowforge is to create custom meaningful gifts for the people in my life. I made this gift set for a good friend’s birthday:
The luggage tag was made with leather sewn to proofgrade maple hardwood
I made the keychain out of leather, acrylic and 2 layers of maple ply
My friend is studying to become a teacher for blind kids, so I made a bracelet with proofgrade thick cherry plywood and engraved it down so that the “Julia” in braille remained and is readable with the fingertips. The wood is sewn to the leather, and rivets were used to help the folded leather hold its curve
And, because you can when you have a laser, I made the perfect package to put it all in!
She loved all of it!
