Used PG draftboard, walnut veneer, maple veneer, and magnets to make a fancy little case for my craft scalpel. It’s frighteningly sharp, so I wanted to make sure it wouldn’t come out by accident. I think I succeeded. The lid of the case is held on by magnets hidden under the veneer.
The video shows the features of the case that are not obvious from the pictures.
Here it is, closed:
With the scalpel held upright.
Here’s the little magnets that hold the scalpel, I had intended to cover these in veneer as well, but it made the lid not fit correctly, so I’m living with imperfection (for now):
I had originally tried to make this project by drawing the various levels of the case, and then using only the trace feature of the Glowforge, but it proved totally unsuccessful. I have videos of that process that I may post later, but my conclusion is that the trace feature is really only suitable for engraving.
