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.
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.
Was playing in field and fell, got up and played some more. Got home and my mom screamed. I had the broken neck of a old returnable Pepsi bottle stuck in my calf (and in the bone). Still have the 3/4 scar. It can happen
When I was about 11 years old, I was hanging out in the kitchen while my grandma was cutting roast beef. There was a pretty big knife on the edge of the counter that somehow fell on my foot. Right after it happened, I started to say “It’s a good thing it didn’t land sharp side down” when I saw the blood squirt from floor level up onto the countertop. Didn’t feel a thing, but I guess it landed sharp side down. Just missed a tendon and left a half inch scar. My favorite part of this awesome memory of my childhood is when my mom drove straight past the hospital full of doctors of questionable skill to a better hospital several miles away. Then I played Nintendo with my foot elevated for several days.
