I was just getting started...

 I've really wanted to make lamps, and here's a rough (very rough) draft. Glad this is cardboard, because the design needs a lot more editing.

It's funny, I tried to make a similar lamp using 3D printing. When I look at the 3D prints I made of a lamp and a stabile, I see I was printing lots of flat shapes and assembling them: that's a smarter job for a laser cutter.

Not sure how I'm going to keep going now that my time is drawing to an end. There are so many things I want to design and make using the laser cutter. Without this opportunity, though, I don't know if I would have ever gotten started.
I guess my options are to do some form of Generator membership...maybe as needed. It's a $25 / day fee to use the laser cutter with an affiliate membership, but I guess that could work. It'll be around $30/month to subscribe to Adobe Illustrator. In order to continue this design development, it's an investment I'll have to make.
