I cannot believe that it’s been nearly a year since the last time I was able to use one of my lasers; time truly does fly. For those who don’t know anything about me, I used to frequent the forum regularly, but life has drastically changed causing me to not be here as often. Last July we packed/sold all of our belongings and had them shipped to us in Utah from Hawaii, where they were to be put in a storage unit while we moved to Thailand. The moving company had issues and took much longer than we anticipated to deliver our things, and as fate would have it, delivered our boxes the day we landed in Bangkok.
We were lucky enough to have friends that were able to meet the movers and load our unit, but it meant that I was unable to use my lasers again like I had planned on doing. After coming home for the summer to visit, we arrived today and I was able to setup one of the lasers (not a fan of having to now download a program to setup the Glowforge, previous way was better in my opinion) and I was able to burn a tray we picked up for my father in law for Father’s Day. I’m actually not sure what type of wood it is, I hadn’t asked the merchant I picked it up from, but after doing this one, when I get back I’ll definitely have to buy more of these trays, they’re beautiful and quite inexpensive!
This doesn’t mean I will be back consistently, sorry(!) but I thought I’d come back to post something for the first time in a while. I had bought myself a piece of wood to engrave, but I apparently left it back in Thailand, oops! I don’t anticipate using the laser much while I’m here but when I do, I’ll try and post the projects just to engage with some fellow enthusiasts
