Free download for laser cut all ply hinges

I have decided to make my all-ply hinges a free download. The hinges can also be cut from any sufficiently strong 4mm material such as Pespex (but beware of the brittle counterfeit Perspex sold on eBay). Find the hinges on my Downloads page.

Tall LED lantern

Tall, mains powered lantern

I finished this lantern at lunch time today. This one is 34cm tall and contains a 10 metre string of LED lights. The lights are powered by a mains adaptor.

The plans & project files will be available to download from my shop in a week or two. I may not have time next week as I’m away in Germany from mid-week.

Large Lanterns

Two new laser cutter download projects

I have added two new projects to my Etsy shop: A large Hearts Lantern and a large Stars Lantern. I’ll add them to the shop on this site in a day or two.

The lanterns are similar to the tea light lanterns I have been selling for a while. These new ones are a lot larger — 18cm (about 7 inches) to the top of the hook.

Dragon Powered Etsy shop

I have opened an Etsy shop. Although I already have a shop on this site, I think Etsy will bring more traffic and more sales. That’s my hope. We’ll see. The shop is called DragonPoweredCrafts.
