They’re done! There is one more 7″ one that wasn’t glued at the time of photos. One panel of the second 5″ didn’t cut through for some reason, so it’s on hold for a while. I can’t wait to try them with actual candles! They took sooo long to cut. Also it doesn’t help that I accidentally cut 12 bottoms instead of 6. Dummmmb!

So I got my files all prepped for lasercutting. Today I thought I would go to Crosscut Hardwoods and buy some wood! But it turns out Trimet is incompetent at getting to that location before 3:00. It gave me this gem:

Sorry, but if I get on at Chinatown at 12:15, I will not be able to get off at Chinatown at 2:45. Oh Trimet. So I guess I’ll be going after class tomorrow. 😛

Here is my file. I’m making candle covers that are 3, 5, and 7″ high, 3″ square. I hope they won’t be too hard to glue! I don’t have much experience with this sort of thing.

Here is what I made in Lasercutting class this weekend! This was just a test run. 3.5″ square on wood. I used my personal logo for the test! It’s a sun with a C.

I was also really enamored with the cut out part, so I appropriated some leather and a bead from a small bag I had, and made a necklace.

I think for the project in this class, I want to make other objects with my logo cut out, like a lantern cover that you could put a candle in.
