I started this project about 6 months ago, but time got away from me, and I didn’t make any progress for quite a while. I finally finished it and it turned out better than I imagined it would. It currently resides in my girls’ room, and uses LED lighting so they won’t have to change the bulb very often, if ever.
I used leather, wood, screws, and some dollar store cutting boards. I may try to make a MUCH larger one using a jigsaw rather than the Glowforge, just for fun, but I haven’t decided yet.
