I guess I’m just going to have to either find the box with my card stock in it, or order some more!

This one is also a real beauty. I need to try the card stock too.

What do you do with them when you’re done?

These are great! Do you have a shop vac next to your laser to clean up the bed?

I’d love to peek inside @evansd2’s house. :wink: I got rid of EVERYTHING before we moved, and I’m already filling my parents’ windowsills up with the stuff I’ve made since we’ve been caretaking here.

This one is a commission and will go to it’s new home shortly.

Not a shop vac but yes a vacuum. I manually take the big pieces out and save them to give to friends that have kids, and Hoover the rest. It’s a mess.

It’s lovely. I’m a big fan of that bright gold against the subtle blues

For this and your others, I just love the color you get from cardstock glued to wood. Just wonderful.

You’ve probably answered this elsewhere, but how many sheets of plywood are you typically using to make one of these?

Striking! What is the scale? About a foot?

8 layers. I get two layers per sheet of ply, so 4 bed-sized sheets.

9.25” diameter, so two layers will fit pretty comfortably on a single sheet.

You could probably build another configuration with the box of cut-outs!

Absolutely beautiful. I bought a couple of pads of coordinated color cardstock at Michael’s yesterday to try this myself.

AAahhhhh so you glue the cardstock on your wood before you cut it. Could you also please tell me which kind of masking tape you use, that would be so gentle on paper? TIA
