ART and PERFORMANCE
I’ve been making quite a few things with the
Glowforge lately. It’s an extremely user-friendly laser cutter and engraver, and it’s an absolute blast to tinker with! Here are some examples of my projects:
Trivet, maple wood. Trivet, maple wood. Buddhist ornament, maple wood. Custom coaster designs, maple wood. Board for the classic “Can’t Stop” dice game, maple wood. Custom design ornament, maple wood. Identical design on maple wood, but using two different settings. Custom designed coaster, maple wood. Settings best for photograph transfers. Custom designed coaster, maple wood. Settings best for illustrations and graphics. Custom boxes, maple wood. Creative designs can be made to assemble 3D projects, too. Customized leather golf tags. I added in the straps so the golfers could attach them easily to their bags. Example of a jigsaw puzzle, complete with custom artwork (my 2020 motto). Memorial plaque as a gift to the staff of a local cinema. Stackable game pieces. Each is a hollow “pyramid,” and they can be stacked upon one another. The sides can also be decorated with cuts or engravings. An example of customized tokens, suitable for tabletop games: currency, victory points, or bidding tokens. Various designs in wood, made with the Glowforge.
