The holiday season is coming!

Seeing the project of Forestmbrown “First self-made project!” gave me a little bit inspiration. So after a bit of autocad and using my glowforce “a star was born!” Used a few pieces of medium acrylic and thin walnut, maple veneer. Hope you like it!star2020_01

Very nice! I like the darker one!

What size are they? I don’t have anything for context? Banana?

Use the Glowforce Luke. :wink:

This is really awesome - it’s very colorful. I’m amazed by those who can do these types of projects. Don’t think I’ll ever get to that level. Well done!

Gorgeous work. I’ve considered similar projects but always got stuck on a good way to assemble. Would you mind sharing what glue you are using and if there’s some special technique?

It’s just like a puzzle between two sheets of thin maple and walnut veneer the double sided tape holds it in place. You could glue the acrylic if you wanted too. Assembly is a matter of minutes. Most of the work is drawing the files.
I scaled it first that became an disaster because the angles get different if you scale. The second try i used offset and it fits fine.
But i can send the files if you want them!
The glue i use for acrylic:

Getting colder here time to use more frost acrylic! Another Saturday of experimenting!

Maybe i could do a Christmas card that way

Ooh - you could do the card itself in cardstock so you could print it in a printer, and then cut out a hole to slide your star into so the recipient could pull out the star and hang it as an ornament :slight_smile:

Yep I was thinking something like that. That’s why I put the holes in it the last minute so you could hang it al so. The saga continues :blush:
