Just take your time. And don’t drop a popsicle stick into the innards.
Wow, it came out great! It looks like you put a little votive light in there—genius idea!
Thanks! It’s actually an LED light base that fits underneath. I made an error in the clearance I needed so it doesn’t fit with the cord. But at least it also takes batteries.
That is gorgeous!!!
Wonderful. I’m working on a few “stained glass” designs myself and hope they turn out just as well as yours.
So gorgeous! I would be so proud to think I inspired someone to make such a great piece and I’m sure @cynd11 will be too.
Your clock reminds me of one of my favorite GF LED pieces.
Wow, that is really cool!
I would love to see them!
Very Pretty. That came out great!
This is sooo cool! How fun and exciting to create such a fabulous gift!
This is incredible, amazing, awesome, and so many other good words.
When I read this:
combined with this:
makes me want to know if by recreate you mean you made it from scratch using rectangles and circles or if you did a bitmap trace of a pattern and then nudged it here and there. If the latter, then I would expect pieces to not fit so well. If the former, then I’m a bit surprised, but kerf can be confounding sometimes.
The reason I would expect a trace to not kerf-compensate all that well is because the more complex the shape the more problems the software has in making a perfect “shadow” of it. And a trace usually has extra nodes causing bumps and stuff. It gets really complicated really quickly. But that clock is amazing; you wound up with a wonderful piece.
Gingerbread house! I need to see it!
Hi there, I recreated it using shapes and lines. I was surprised too, the red and yellow pieces fit perfectly. And the first three purple ones did too. Then there were just some that were way too small. I had to increase the kerf value on those from. 008 to. 01 to get them to fit, it was really odd. But of course, I haven’t had anything yet work on the first try, so I wasn’t surprised.
Haha! Will have to wait until December lol
Noooooooooooo! Sneak peek? Or a good old fashioned contest for best gingerbread house by November!
I have a friend who won a gingerbread house contest. They flew her to New York City and put her up for a few days. She was on some TV show with a couple other winners. It was great, not only for the winning and fifteen minutes of fame, but the trip isn’t something she’d normally be able to do.
Well, I can show you one from a few years ago… laser unassisted
I’m afraid this year will be a boring old house where everything fits without sanding and with cool trim and hopefully some engraved gingerbread (not holding my breath on that one).
