This is my first post, although I’ve been making lots of things on the GF. I decided to finally share my work here. I’ve appreciated this community. I’ve scoured and read hundreds of articles to perfect my projects. THANK YOU to all of you who share.
I had a client who needed 37 walnut cutting boards. They wanted them to be high-end, quality, pieces. I found a beautiful piece of butcher block walnut. I cut them down to size, sanded, engraved, sanded again, finished with butcher block mineral oil and the Good Stuff (on the front only, actually).
The blocks were approx 1.5 in thick so I had to engrave without the crumb tray.
Also - I might add, I always had in the back of my mind, “I hope the GF can handle this” - Each engrave took 1.5 hours. So you can imagine I was running the machine for a lot of hours for a lot of days. I did have to clean/wipe down the GF occasionally as expected. I also have a duct fan that helps pull dust and odor outside. Huge shout out and props to the Glowforge Team for such a great machine. It handled this large project flawlessly.
