Like many of you I was looking for somewhere to actually place the glowforge. I needed something with storage for materials and that wouldn’t visually annoy my wife. So I put together a custom ikea solution that matched some other cabinets we already had in the same room. Cost from ikea was about $350 and home depot was another $50 for the extra ducting materials, so about $400 total. It’s a pretty awesome setup, your left with a little gap on 1 side since the counter top is a little wide.
Here’s what you need from ikea, the rest depends on your ducting solution.
