For all of us that are waiting for the arrival of the mighty Glowforge to our homes, what is the first real project you are going to do? Sure, we’ll all make the Founder’s ruler and all that, but after that what are you going to tackle?
For me, the first thing I’m going to try is an engrave/cut of this motif into a playing card box:
It is part of one of my previous deck designs and was on the seal and also on the back of the cards, and I have plans to create a super-limited-edition gilded version of the deck (I kept about 50 decks aside to do this project).
I’ve been patiently waiting for the Glowforge since I originally did this deck in late 2015 and I want to create a super luxurious box with the motif engraved into the paper, along with various cutout parts so that a collector can view their gilded deck without really having to open the box. There’s a lot of detail packed into that small space so it will certainly be a test of what the GF can do! I think it will perform admirably from the tests I’ve seen other folks do so far.
What are you going to make?
