Personalized photo frames for $1 + :Glowforge:


#1

Michael’s had craft frames on sale last week for $1 a pack (1-3 items, depending). My sister-in-law asked me to make a graduation present for a family friend, so I came up with this…

Engraved at 1/335/240, approx 13 minutes, then stained, shellaced, and buffed with 0000 steel wool.

My wife liked it, so made this for her sister.

I have a stack of these frames with various cutouts ready for the next last-minute request. :wink:

Those look great! I van see you doing a lot of those on the spot.


#8

Awesome! The ability to personalize something like this is priceless!


#9

Oh I like these, they’d be a bit more from :proofgrade:but a lot less work.


#10

Those came out fantastic ! Is the black added or just the “engrave burn” ? Looks very crisp !! (as in clean). Beautiful job !!


#11

Proofgrade is much better quality than the ply they used and wouldn’t have taken much longer (maybe gluing two layers in order to get the photo pocket on the back), but for a buck I didn’t see how I could go wrong. :wink:

The only added colorant were two coats of pecan stain to both pieces. As an experiment, the top one was engraved then stained, and the bottom one was stained then engraved – didn’t seem to matter (as expected, given Proofgrade performance).


#12

I plan on using the Glowforge to print a bunch of scriptures as well! This is awesome!


#13

Those are just lovely! (Saw them this morning and apparently neglected to comment.)

They would be great for a confirmation gift. :relaxed:


#14

Perfect! simple, beautiful, thoughtful, and quick!

Great Idea, thanks for sharing … now off to Michaels
