My exterior wall has shingles, and the placement of the doorbell wire makes it difficult to mount a fancy doorbell, larger than a simple button. Glowforge to the rescue!
(happy to share the cut file, but it doesn’t seem relevant to anyone else)
Material used is Ruisita Unfinished Square Wood Pieces. I specifically did not use PG here, because I did not want the veneer layer, and cheap wood would suffice.
I’m always so happy to discover the things we can use our Glowforges for around the home, especially use stuff like this! Great job!
Great execution. Well done!
I love practical cuts, especially if they are for a unique solution. It expands my library of “possible.”
What a cool, professional looking solution! Seems like you could sell these to your neighbors…
Very nicely done! Looks professional!
Practical projects are always my favorites. Well done.
Love it! Totally worth the purchase of your Glowforge.
I love seeing other people’s practical cuts because I am so NOT practical.
Thanks for all the responses! It seems this was way more popular than I would ever have guessed.
I made something very similar to mount a Next doorbell for a friend. I didn’t take pics or save the file. It came with a plastic bracket but that didn’t fit the angle of the siding perfectly where the wiring was, just needed to be shimmed a little.
My GF is just another tool in my workshop for solving problems like that.
I love to McGyver my way out of a problem job or project especially if I can use the GF and that is just what you have done.
I love this!
I need to design something that will be similar to this but also has some type of theft deterrent. But I don’t want it on the front door (like this example below) since we often have the door open. We have a screendoor that is kept closed, so I don’t know. We will see. I haven’t worked on it yet at all.
Haha! I love when folks use GF to problem-solve. Well done.
