When my Glowforge arrived late July I hadn’t even heard of Inkscape. I had all these ideas but they took a little longer to materialize. Thanks to this forum I learned a great deal and one of my ideas came out better than I hoped.
It’s a shadow box using some of the iconic images of Glastonbury, UK. I’ve lived in the US now since '90, but before that I lived in the UK for 5 years and Glastonbury holds fond memories. Using photos and Pixelmator and Inkscape, I got it to work. The box is small 5"x5", 5 layers. Used proof grade maple ply, walnut ply, and cherry ply, with 1 spacer behind the tree. Gluing the layers together didn’t work out quiet perfectly, but it’s good enough for my own enjoyment. The rest of the time I’ve made presents - I’d say 98% of my output is that!
