I decided to push myself a bit to stick my creative neck out there by signing up for the Imgur Secret Santa gift exchange and make something awesome for a stranger. I work better under pressure so I thought this would be a fun challenge. My glowforge got here later than expected but I can’t really use that as an excuse for being late, since I didn’t start on the design until it arrived. I also didn’t do myself any favors by picking cork as a project material. I contacted the person it’s going to and they were cool about the delays.
They said they were into Stranger Things so I decided to make coasters that look like Eggos. After those were done, I wanted to take on a little more and add a little extra. How about something to put them in? How about a toaster! What about a cool box too? I’ve never made a box before!
Trial and error with the cork took the longest. Cork is not fun.
