Okay folks, this might be a longshot but here we go.
I purchased a glowforge for my wife, who has been eyeing it for a little while. It’s a gift for our 10 year wedding anniversary. She loves stuff like this.
I figured I would get it, set it up, and print off a wood shaped wedding ring to be our “10 year anniversary ring” type of thing. The real gift is the glowforge.
Unfortunately I did not order in time, and will not be able to make the ring. I’m reaching out to see if anyone would mind making this wood wedding ring for me. Our anniversary is in two weeks. Anyone mind helping me out with this one? I live in Texas.
Wow that would be phenomenal. I literally have no design in mind. I was going to try to do something simple and find a simple ring box. If you end up helping me out, it can literally be anything as long as it has at least the basic shape of a diamond ring.
I don’t have much to spend, as I just purchased the glowforge, but I can pay something, just let me know what you think is fair.
Don’t worry about payment. Some day you will make something really cool and you will be able to send it to me! If you don’t mind, we can keep this topic going in the wild until we need to talk addresses and such. It will be an opportunity for a collaboration with everyone else. There will be lots of opinions on something like this.
You just discovered why this community is the absolute best accessory for that new laser!
@marmak3261 helped me get going when I had no idea what I was doing. The friendly atmosphere, the vast experience, and the willingness to help make this place the go-to for anything related to the glowforge. @marmak3261, @cynd11, and @jcarrion just demonstrated what makes this community special. Make sure your future wife joins us!
The idea of your gift is fantastic - she will be thrilled !! Pretty crafty of you to have a special ring made with the laser!
Congratulations on your soon to be marriage, and Welcome to the community!
Hey man, when I met her, I knew it was close to her Birthday, but I wasn’t sure. I had no choice but to rummage through her purse for the driver’s license. I was quite sure she would catch me pilfering her wallet, and I thought "Dam*it David - don’t you ever forget this. 40 years later, so far so good. 11/6/ 56.
Hey everyone! This is the wife here! Thanks SO SO much for being part of this special surprise!!! I am so excited to get started with the glowforge!
