That’s nothing like brining home a new toy for your craft room. And that’s certainly the case when it’s something as cool as a Glowforge laser cutter. However, every new crafting machine requires its own set of things to make using it both fun and functional.

That’s why we wanted to share the first 5 things we bought for the Glowforge. But even more than that, there are the first 5 things that we’re glad we bought, because we have been reaching for them again and again in the 8 months or so that we’ve had our Glowforge. We cover everything from what table we use for the Glowforge (spoiler: it’s a mobile Husky cart) to which masking is best for Glowforge materials and more. So without further delay…


If you’re considering buying a Glowforge, we’d appreciate it if you use our GLOWFORGE REFERRAL LINK. You can get up to $500 off, and we’ll get something too, which will enable us to keep creating content!
