So after many many months of stalking this forum I can finally say my delivery is scheduled for next week!
I’ve asked to have it held at the local UPS so I can pick it up myself. My local delivery guy will be glad that I will finally quit talking to him about it I’m sure. He’s a nice guy and all but the idea of it riding around in his truck all day horrifies me. Everyone like the sound of a rain stick and all but its not what I had in mind.
The worst part of it is I’m thinking I’m going to have to pick it up and then I have to work my real job that evening. All the while the Glowforge will be sitting at home all smug like, mocking me while I am completely worthless at work.
Ive got several files ready to go (I hope) and I plan to hydrate myself and take the next few days off after delivery. My wife can just slide trays of food under the door while I cackle my best mad scientist laugh from within the lab.
How do you pick just one direction to go? I am like a kid in a candy store with the attention of a gold fish. Every time I see one of your projects I immediately want to make that instead. I have this collection of everything started at home. Leather, paper, wood, cardboard, ear ring parts, acrylic, etc. I just want to do all the things at once.
So thank you for all of the inspiration while I have waited. I hope to be sharing more with you as this adventure begins.
