Once upon a time I got into a discussion about lack of quality of my photos. To cut a long story short, this wasn’t due to effort on my part, but more on my mobility issues. Next thing I know, I have a tool designed just for me, that enables me to open the front door of my Glowforge! It is great to feel enabled even if you use it rarely. I love this forum…
@evansd2 just gave permission for me to post the design in the hopes to help others in a similar position as me.

Upon his recommendation I used 1/8" baltic birch. I added some washi tape in case of splinters. First, I held them together with 2 hands and pulled the middle of the front. No go. Then I held one in each hand and pulled at either edge - YES! I also made sure I had a more solid stance and bingo.
We hope this can be of use to someone!
