One year aniversery of The Email!

Here is how it happened.

Driving to my parents for a weekend visit with my wife and ~3 month old daughter. As I’m driving, my phone beeps, letting me know I got an email.

Should I check it? Nah I’m not expecting anything urgent.

I pull into my parents driveway and check my phone.

That’s weird, an email from Glowforge. Maybe I’m getting a PRU?

I skim it real quick while still in the car. Then I read it again.

Me: “Honey! We’re getting a Glowforge! A production unit!”
Better Half: (As she is bringing our daughter into the house) “That’s nice, can you grab the bags?”

One year of Forging, and I couldn’t be happier with it! Thanks @GlowforgeStaff!

I have a project I’m working on that I’m hoping to have finished by the anniversary of my Glowforge delivery!


We ought to switch the anniversary notices to date of delivery! A whole year! Congrats! :balloon::tada::confetti_ball::tanabata_tree::dizzy::grinning:


Wow. Time flies. Yes, this was the famous BAMF shipping now! It’s been a year since I was in San Mateo. How things change. Narry a peep about it. Glowforge is there but doesn’t look like anyone else. I wish I could have swung it again. Someday. Maybe Chicago. Hard for me to do a weekend.

Thanks for all your contributions to the forum and sharing the experience if the first forge.


I’m hoping some of the staff who attend take some pics…they’re etching the visitors’ cell phones this go round…looks like a heck of a lot of fun! :grinning:


I was just thinking that mine is about a year old now too. I’ll have to go look!

Looking forward to seeing your next creations.
