With Christmas and New Years over I decided to look forward to another holiday when I was thinking about my next laser cutting project.
It starts with a plan. In this case I took the drawing the I created for my Christmas candle, delete the tree and added some hearts. I created three different patterns.
Then I cut some of the boards that I’m recycling from old blinds to the correct length (enough to make one candle and still fit in the laster cutter)
Laser Cutting is the next step. It takes about two and a half minutes to cut out each candle holder. You can also see that it takes the whole width of the blind.
With the pieces all cut out, including the four pieces of red tissue paper all that is left is to glue it all together.
Here are the three prototypes. Which means …
… ready to go into production.
Happy Valentine’s Day a month early.
