I ordered a Glowforge Plus last month and was quoted to come in April. Well it showed up a few weeks early before I got my space ready. Really excited to plug it in and play with it, but I don’t have a desk/table for it yet. Any suggestions on something affordable. Was looking at some workbenches from Lowes/Home Depot. It is going in a spare bedroom that has nothing in it.
Very excited how early it showed up, I should have started getting the room ready earlier.
Congratulations on your new purchase. I bought the 2X4 Basics Custom Work Bench. It’s only the 4 corner pieces then you need to purchase the 2X4’s and the table separately. I used 1/2 MDF for mine and it has two shelves under the top table where my GF sits. It also comes with 6 brackets to makes 2 additional shelves, again the wood comes separate.
Search Amazon for 2x4basics 90164 Custom Work Bench and Shelving Storage System, Black
So I used one with two shelves under the Glowforge and put the extra shelves on two others, so it makes a very inexpensive place for the Glowforge and if desired use the Glowforge to make a decorative exterior!
They come in a number of sizes and most hardware and HD/ Lowes etc. will have them.
Welcome and thanks you for sharing some good news! It’s always nice to hear. I didn’t see anyone say this yet but if you’re handy you can always make one yourself. I made my table out of 2x4’s and 3/4" plywood. I was able to do shelving underneath for cleaning supplies and my PG Material. It’s strong, sturdy, and for me I had scrap around so it didn’t cost a thing! I can’t imagine that a few 2x4’s and some plywood would run you too much. Enjoy!
