I love lanterns. There is something about them that draws me in and if an idea pops into my head for a new project design, there's pretty good chance it is probably a lantern or light fixture of some sort. I also love designing for CNC machines. I've been on a metal working and welding kick so a natural next project felt like *drum roll please*
a CNC Plasma Cut Lantern.
We don't have a CNC plasma cutter at Makers Workshop so I called up our friend Richard from 42 Fab who agreed to cut my design for me in steel after I prototyped it in cardboard. I am pretty psyched with how this design turned out and learned a lot along the way.
Have a welder and want to give it a try? Check out the Lantern Weld-It-Yourself Kit from 42FAB.
