The Glowforge Catalog features some tasteful, lovely designs, but without getting an EPS/SVG style deliverable, it makes it impossible to scale it up by about 30% so that a votive will fit glass candle holders-- which just makes me feel safer when using a real candle.
So here is my riff on my inspiration from the Catalog, made into a gift to take to my friends Ana and Eduardo for a house warming and to celebrate their first baby. The flat-pack of laser cut designs are perfect for luggage.
…and the sun design, which I created for my twist-lock gift box last weekend, was useful to repurpose here for a celebratory lighting “grate”. But when my wife saw it she said, “That makes me think of the Circle of Life!”
So… because the Glowforge is so user friendly, today I created a derivative Lion King Jr design to make into thank-you gifts for my wife’s staff after their performance tomorrow night! Whew!
