Jewellery Stand Progress

Things are coming along nicely with the jewellery stand I've been designing for myself. After a few design rounds on the computer I printed it out on paper, glued it onto cardboard and then spent an hour and half cutting it out by hand with a craft knife. My poor fingers ended up with a few nicks and cuts by the end of it.

I know, it looks kind of ugly like this. But using paper and cardboard for a prototype is the fastest and cheapest way to see how the design turns out.

After a few small adjustments I sent the file off to the laser cutter. Unfortunately he didn't have any light grey acrylic on hand but this will do for now.

Next up, coming up with a base that holds it upright!
