Mom's Christmas Present


#1

So I wanted to share a Christmas Present I made my mom. I just received my GlowForge about 10 days ago and this was always the first item I wanted to do with it. My Zio (uncle) Pasquale made this over 20 years ago and has been gone almost that long. It had broken up a little, so I decided to recreate it. I used proof grade maple (wanted larger and use passthrough, but couldn’t find) and mirrored acrylic from inventables. I’m uploading my image, as well as the original I worked off of. The original is about 23" across.

I’m usually posting on facebook groups, but figured I needed to share this here as I use this forum so much as well.

Awesome reproduction. I’ll bet she was thrilled with it!

I like your forum handle too. :wink:

LOL
