UPDATED 1/15: First 6 Weeks with the Glowforge


I’ve had my Glowforge, Laserwolf, for six weeks now. He survived the Thomas Fire in Ojai and has already eaten through about $200 in Proofgrade materials!

I love him.

Anyway, I’ve not had any luck posting photos on this forum, so instead I made a little blog over on my website which I plan to update weekly. It’s mostly projects with Proofgrade materials at the moment, but once I get a bit more brave, I’ll be sharing all the speed and power technical bits.


And thank you to everyone who posts on this forum It is an amazing resource for a laser newbie like me.



Edit: Finished my first Glowforge-originated mosaic piece http://www.julesweissman.com/laserwolf/2018/1/14/mosaic-project-part-two


Neat stuff! I love seeing the :glowforge: used to make things like your stamps.

The bubble wands remind me of drink swizzles; I’ve been trying to think of a swizzle design theme for when I get my 'forge, and I might just have to yoink this idea.

I look forward to seeing your continuing blog posts!


Love your website artwork! :sunglasses:
All you have to do is drag and drop the images you would like to post in your message.


Yeah, those are some great projects! :grinning:


So great. I particularly liked your discussion of stamp designs — it’s interesting to see what existing artwork transfers to laser and what tweaks are required, isn’t it?

Thanks! I’ll try again next time.

Very! I love experimenting with things so I think this laser will keep me occupied for the rest of my life.

Thanks @Jules… Hey. I’m getting the hang of this I think.!


(maybe not)

Just drag it over to the open post and release. :wink:

I like your New Year’s glasses. And I concur.


Until you have made some number of posts I believe the forum software prevents you from loading more than one picture in a post.

Your art is great. I’m sure you consider your bubble wands not much more than a doodle, but I love them and the mouths are cool too.


Some great first projects!
