Here is this week’s project post:
You know how some people have a thing that you can’t picture them without?
Maybe it’s a pair of distinctive glasses, some signature lipstick, or memorable shoes. For Jonathan, a software engineer at Glowforge, it is without a doubt his classic fedora (NOTE: Facebook has since corrected me - it’s actually a Trilby hat, whoops!). I’m certain that Jonathan was wearing the hat the first time I met him, and more often than not, it’s either on his head or on his desktop hand-stand. And a few months ago, it got a major (laser-made) upgrade.
The snazzy new hat band was printed out of super thin hardwood veneer, and the design reminds me of antlers - maybe a tribute to Jonathan’s home state of Idaho or his love of the outdoors. In any case, it turns it from a hat that you couldn’t pick out from a lost & found to something I’d swear came from a high-end millinery.
Do you have something you can upgrade with a Glowforge?
