Me and my friends use birthday candles to make a birthday more special. But it needs extra coast, and disposable. So I thought birthday celebrating decoration which can be used every year and for everyone.
I wanted to make a three layer’s birthday cake shape and also looked like a chandelier.
3. Raw materials
I founded wood board in the Junk shop.
- materials: wood board, thin wire, glue gun, wood glue
- tools: lazer cutter
1) Make illustrator file
I set the printer setting as the guide but it was not cut, so I had to do twice. After two attempts, I did successfully cut at once from the third time.
The place where to glue is so narrow, it was hard to stick together with a wood glue. But a glue gun worked.
4) Connect three layers
That was the hardest part of this project. I tried to a thread but it was super hard to make a balance. Maybe I make holes in different directions to hold them tightly. I changed to use a thin wire and it was better than before..but still difficult to keep the center of gravity.
5. Final work
To lazer cutter, experiment of printing statement was really important because it is affected a lot to which material I use.
