New owner - Project's I made in my first month

Here are just a few of the projects I made during my first month of ownership. I’m overwhelmed (in a good way) with all the possibilities and have been having so much fun exploring and trying out new things. This community provides tons of information and encouragement. Thank you all!

Thanks everyone! When making the paint rack I was glad I had found out about cutting corrugated cardboard test pieces before going to wood. My math was a little off on the first try and the holes would not have lined up correctly when set at that angle. I also used this project as a way for me to learn and test out creating my own joints.

I was remiss in not attributing the posts that I used to create the LED base and the Day of the Dead skull. My apologies and thanks to @marmak3261 and @canton!

Very productive first month. I do like to see these homemade bases. The different colors of the filament can really make them pop. I use some translucent filament and that gives great color without multicolor LEDs.

Very cheap to make.
