Glowforge can be a great support tool for your woodworking projects

You can do amazing things with your GF, But sometimes it’s also a great support tool. Making a whole series of animal templates for toddler toys. In this case I’am using 8th inch masonite Designed in adobe illustrator and cut using the glowforge. I might use half inch Baltic Birch plywood in the future so that I can use a router trim bit to cut out the shapes… The solid three-quarter inch birch is a little challenging on the scroll saw. (Quite thick and hard for the very small blades) .

I’ve tilted my head multiple ways, much to the amusement of my dog, but I can’t tell what animal that is?

An anteater?

Nice. I couldn’t imagine not having a laser for jigs and fixtures. I’m sold on my Glowforge for stuff like this.

Rough cut with band saw and finish up with the trim router is one way to go. Bigger blades on the band saw. The hole looks like an artistic B for Bmundy.
