I’m a long-time dabbler with my Glowforge, but this is my first post.
I had a wrought iron sign holder for the yard that I put out annually with a Christmas sign. Last Christmas I started to think about making some signs with my Glowforge for the different seasons/holidays. Since I had some lighted bricks in the sidewalk I thought that I might tap that circuit and make it a lighted sign as well.
I made a black acrylic holder with led lights installed that would allow the signs to be interchangeable. The holder was made from four layers of acrylic that were super glued together to created a groove for the leds.
Now I need to start on an American Flag for July 4th.
Made another yard sign for the 4th of July. I had a little problem that I didn’t notice when I combined the stars in Inskscape - one of the stars was dropped off. Sorry Hawaii. I’ve corrected it, but not before I made the sign. I spray painted the etched areas.
Here is my Christmas Santa sign. I downloaded and edited several of the free graphics included with Premium. The picture doesn’t show it very well, but each bulb in the string of lights at the top has a colored LED glued to the back.
Added a couple more yard signs for Christmas and Valentine’s day.
