First post, and very much new to glowforge, it’s not even here yet.
My name is Anselm, and I’ve done lots of different artsy things over the years, mainly ceramics and jewelry (ended up getting a minor in studio art related to those 2 things). But I haven’t touched almost anything in 3 years (due to depression, illness, and focusing mainly on improving mental health and getting a stable job). With most of those things (hopefully) behind me, I saw the GlowForge add on facebook and my creative side sparked again. I just had to have it, and after a couple more months of saving up, I’ll be receiving the Pro this Tuesday (I have a habit of wanting the best; thanks stable job).
I just received the shipping confirmation today and saw that it was 106 pounds, and since my physical health hasn’t really recovered that much, it makes my back ache just thinking about it lol.
Nevertheless, I can’t wait. I haven’t been excited over anything in years, but I am for this. I’ve already probably spent 40+ hours just reading the How-Tos and seeing everyone’s amazing creations. I can’t wait to officially be apart of such an amazing community.
