Highlights from the first month


#1

I made some nice Christmas presents and ornaments but didn’t get pictures.

I had some time to kill today and made a globe and a nice jewelry box with a red leather inlay for my daughter.

Glowforge won’t let me upload multiple images or post links to sources, sorry.

Search for dymaxian globe on thingiverse for the globe files.
See below for the link to the box maker I used (glowforge won’t let me post links.)


#3

Lot of cool projects there! :grinning:


#4

You have been busy! Some very nice projects!


#5

Very impressive array of projects! I really like the denim one.


#6

It seems to work well on normal denim. I tried my daughter’s thin denim stretchy jeans. The etch looked good but disintigrated as soon as she put them on.


#7

http://www.festi.info/boxes.py/index.html is a really great tool – I use it for almost all my boxes.


#8

Inlayed with red leather. Very cool idea.


#9

The local leather store has a bin with scraps for $5/pound. Lot’s of unique embossing and colors. I grabbed a bunch. Do test engraves. I guestimated and the engrave is a hair too deep. I also reduced the size of the leather R 1%. That was either unnecesary or too much. There is a very slight gap between the leather and the wood. More testing needed.

Thank you!! I had no idea such a tool existed. Very helpful.


#11

Way cool projects! I like the icosahedron the best. Well done.
