Kitchen Utensil Holder Details

This is a fun little decoration for the counter that serves as a functional piece as well. I made this from 1/8 inch material I got from https://ocoochhardwoods.com/lumber/. I don’t get anything for recommending them, I just really like their wood and shipping time. Always had a good experience.

The dimensions are 6 inches by 6 inches by 6 inches which may vary with the material you use. I have this dimensions for a few sizes listed in the product description.

Some Endorsed Products

The wood for this project came from Ocooch Hardwoods though I often use  https://amzn.to/3oyG8Xq #ad as well.

I would highly recommend  https://amzn.to/3epaUvY #ad I also use  https://amzn.to/3Nt9d0E #ad as well. It doesn’t adhere quite as well but it is one of only a few 12 inch wide rolls I could find. I like it so far because of how easy it is to get off.

If you want to make gluing a lot easier I recommend  https://amzn.to/3qxshSz #ad with  https://amzn.to/3IqnOHX #ad. It really helps!

Cat Shower Curtain Clip

The Cat Shower Curtain Clip Digital Download is a file I have been turning around in my head for a while now. I wasn’t sure how it would come out so finally I just made it. It didn’t take too long, made it in about 10 minutes in Inkscape and most of that time is because I am a perfectionist.

This is what it looks like.

Nothing too fancy but you can see the general idea.

Cat Shower Curtain Clip Details

This is a fun little decoration for the cat lover in all of us. I made this from acrylic that I got from https://cmsacrylics.com/ I don’t get anything for recommending them, I just really like their acrylic and shipping time. Always had a good experience.

The Cat Clip I made is from the black 1/8 inch acrylic. It cut great. The opening for the rod is 2 inches. They will have to slide over one end of the rod and they the curtain can be hooked to the ‘tail’

The Pumpkin Shelf

The Pumpkin Shelf Digital Download is a file that allowed me to finally try my hand at kerf cutting. I am really happy with the way it came out. I am, as always, very thankful for all of the new users and encourage everyone to join the conversation and put in some requests in my Facebook group, Glowforge Creators.

This is what it looks like.

Assembly is pretty easy but may require some finess.

Download the instructions here if you want to see how its made before purchasing.

You can purchase the file from my site by clicking the ‘Shop Now’ button below or find it on Etsy.



Some details

The pumpkin shelf is a fun little seasonal design. This file was made for wood supplied from Ocooch Hardwoods but I often use https://amzn.to/3oyG8Xq #ad. The shelf is currently dimensioned for material that is .125 inches thick.

Most of the files I create come in different sizes but this file is a little different. This is my first attempt at publishing a kerf cut file and adjusting the size will lead to some complications. I am willing to try for some variations but you will have to bear with me, pun intended.

If you have been following along with product recommendations, I tried the same new tape . The tape is from here https://amzn.to/3Nt9d0E #ad. Again, it does NOT adhere as well as other products and that is partially what I like about it. You will definitely want something for the kerf cut pieces because sanding it sucks!


Some dimensions

The material thickness this is dimensioned for is 1/8 inch (.125) and it works great.

The entire design is ~10 inches wide, ~8 inches tall, and ~2 inches deep.

I used about 1.5 sheets of standard 12 by 20 laser material to make mine. It will depend on whether or not you want to use the face piece.

Some details

This file was made for wood supplied from https://amzn.to/3oyG8Xq #ad. The shelf is currently dimensioned for material that is .125 inches thick and .25 inches thick but I am adding more.

If you have been following along with product recommendations, I tried the same new tape . The tape is from here https://amzn.to/3Nt9d0E #ad. It does NOT adhere as well as other products and that is partially what I like about it. It does the job of preventing smoke and burn marks and then comes right off. I use a scrap piece of wood to push it on with some force and smooth it out after applying.


Some dimensions

The material thickness this is dimensioned for is 1/8 inch (.125) and it works great. There is an additional file for .25 inches. Reach out to me if you need it adjusted though and I will do what I can.

I used my batch conversion trick to turn all of my SVG’s into PNG and PDF’s on this file. If you haven’t learned the trick, its a real time saver. Take a look here.

If you have been following along with product recommendations, I am still using the new tape . The tape is from here https://amzn.to/3Nt9d0E #ad.

Quick Tips

If you don’t like the idea of the sides getting in the way of your displays, put them on the underside of each tray instead of the top. It will add about an inch of height to the overall assembly but still provides a nice clean look.

Bird Feeder Digital Download

The Bird Feeder Digital Download is a file I have been wanting to make for a while. My little bear (2 year old daughter) is fascinated by birds of late and I thought this would help keep her wide eyed for a bit longer.

This is what it looks like.

I have had a few varieties of birds approach it so far. The Eastern Bluebirds are wary but I am hoping they’ll come around.

Assembly is really easy.

Some details

This file was made for wood supplied from https://amzn.to/3oyG8Xq #ad. When I do, my cuts interlock best when I design for a material thickness of .115 inches.

I tried a new tape this time too. It is from here https://amzn.to/3Nt9d0E #ad. I will have to use this a few more times before I can get a real review for you but so far I like it. I will say, It does NOT adhere as well as other products and that is partially what I like about it. It does the job of preventing smoke and burn marks and then comes right off.


Some dimensions

The material thickness this is dimensioned for is 1/8 inch (.125) and it works great. There is also a file for .115 inches which is what I used and the press fit was so good I didn’t need to use glue. Reach out to me if you need it adjusted though and I will do what I can. The dimensions for this can only be adjusted so much because of the nature of the design but I always do what I can for people.

The entire design is 11 inches tall, 6.75 wide, and 6.75 deep thick.

I will be using my batch conversion trick to turn all of my SVG’s into PNG and PDF’s on this file. If you haven’t learned the trick, its a real time saver. Take a look here.

This will require a few pieces, I can’t remember exactly, of standard 12X20 inch laser sheets with some leftover.

Some details

This is actually made from the same file as the standard moon shelf download so if you have that al well you will notice a lot of the dimensions are the same.

Repeating Hexagon Shelf – The Next Steps

A new file finally available! This is a repeating hexagon shelf. Like the original post claimed, will be able to make one, two, as many as you want. The assembly should be very simple. There’s only three files. First, cut the bottoms. Then, insert the shelves. Next, insert the middle connector and just keep going.

This is the overall design.

You can keep it small or make it tall.

Assembly is easy as can be!

Very adjustable.


This is really the magic piece!

What’s next with repeating hexagon shelf?

I test cut all of my files before releasing them so that I can be sure there are not flaws. There was one time I got a little to big for my britches and didn’t test cut, and naturally, there was a flaw in the file.

Thus, my first step with any finished file is some test cuts.

Next, I adjust. This file was made for wood supplied from Ocooch Hardwoods. I usually use wood supplies from here or from https://amzn.to/3oyG8Xq #ad. When I do, my cuts interlock best when I design for a material thickness of .115 inches. I did that on this design and the fits worked great for 90% of the cuts. But, some of them were a bit more snug then I think customers would like.

Your Input?

So, I will be doing back to the design to make some variations. I will make a folder for varying material thicknesses ranging from the .115 inch that I use to .25 inches. If you have a material thickness in mind, comment at the bottom and I will add it in.

I added some of the picture below so you can see what the pieces look like in its current form.

I will be using my batch conversion trick to turn all of my SVG’s into PNG and PDF’s on this file. If you haven’t learned the trick, its a real time saver. Take a look here.

Keep an eye on the flash-free files for this one!

I am also still working to create a version of this to hang on a wall.
