Hexagon Wall Hangings

Hi, Just thought I would quickly share my latest little project.

My daughter made a set of hexagon shaped shelves in my shop to hang on the wall for a decorative art piece. She sent me these photos of the finished project.


So I started thinking, maybe I could submit an addition to her art project. So I fired up the laser and came up with this:

I designed the honeycomb layers in Inkscape and bought the bee images on Creative Market stock graphic sight.

Of course I had to put something in to personalize it :slight_smile:

She was pretty happy to add it to her wall.
Now that I have it finished other ideas popped into my head. Next I think I may make a clock…

This is a fine piece of artwork / such a delicate honeycomb!

Thank You! I thought for sure that the bottom layer was going to be burnt to a crisp but it held up well.

Love how you combined the fluid shape with the rigid honeycomb design - and layered as well!

What a fabulous addition! I’ve been wanting to tackle a bee hive myself. You’ve inspired me! Thanks for sharing.

The different depth was a nice touch.
Makes it stand out (pun not intended).

The shelves look really great! I agree, the various depths are neat.

Does anyone else sometimes just sit back in awe of this machine and what it allows us to do and the creativity it sparks? @tjleasa sees something inspiring and is able to act in it and make a beautiful piece of art for a loved one. It’s so beautiful.

Well said! Still in awe of this machine after years now.

@tjleasa, great work!

:heartbeat: x100. I could not agree with you more. I never felt that I’m naturally an artistically inclined person (Right brain, left brain thing, I’m sure) but always wanted to be; draw, paint, play music, etc. A year ago, pre-GF, I never would have had the ability to make a project like that but more importantly I don’t think I would have even thought of it.
I have a small workshop in my basement and I think the GF (along with my 3-d printer and CNC), has even increased my ability to use my traditional tools in a more creative way.

That is fantastic! I love how the gf allows us to never see what the limits of our imagination are.

Oh wow, what a gorgeous piece! You definitely elevated a very nice set of shelves to the status of an art piece.
