What projects are you working on during break? Answered

For those of you who have time off over the holidays, what will you be working on?

I have 3D printing and laser cut jewelry ideas I want to work on both for Instructables and Etsy while I (hopefully) have some time and I was curious if people had plans for projects they wanted to try to get done.

My daughter recently got into air plants. I think I will be making holders for them.

Not sure. I was thinking about copper wire and/or wood.

Haven't really worked on my own projects yet, but trying to get as much done as I can for this Laser Cut Catan game for my husband. Been taking a long time to etch using my Glowforge.

Looks really nice!
I have already seen several Glowforge photos. It seems to be pretty good. How do you like it?

Working through some classes. I really want to upgrade my 3D printing workflow.

That's great! Instructables classes or school classes? What classes/subjects are you focusing on?

There are not many possibilities for Maker workshops in my area.
I will join the Instructables classes. They are awesome. I worked my way through the 3D printing classes from Jon-A-Tron.

Ive been working on a ratrod project over the last few months, hope to get a bit more done.
Its a 1980 hilux that I shorten 400mm, making it the same length as a short wheel base which never came to Australia.
So a bit more welding, and I still have to shorten the drive shaft, exahust, hand brake cables, and replace the clutch and it should be very close to driveable.

I hope to be able to make it an Instructable. I haven't posted an I'ble in over 8 months! It's so hard to film (video) and take pictures of projects while I'm making them.
