Ahh! The elusive GlowForge for which I eagerly signed up for 14 months ago has been delayed again. Now we’re talking July of 2017. DANG IT.

Having experienced the joys of product development, I can understand the delays. I’m obviously disappointed – but that’s how complicated machines come together. I respect┬áthe optimism of the GlowForge team and will take the additional time before the arrival of the GlowForge to become a software expert. By the time this monster reaches our doorway, I intend to be able to take full advantage.

One of the first projects I want to complete is the cutting and construction of a briefcase. Perhaps I should learn some basic leather working skills now so that I can achieve lasery leathery greatness more quickly. Oh the things to learn!

    What made you decide on this machine versus a small commercial unit?

      If the Glowforge team can pull off what they advertise I think it will be a very user friendly experience. I went for this specifically for its potential user-friendliness.

      From a pure capability standpoint, I’m most impressed with the options for embossing/engraving.
