I'm inspired by this picture, which I found on Pinterest.
I want to have a wall of gears too!
Mine will be different though. I don't want them to be symmetrical, and I want each gear to be very different from each other.
I want the gears to be pretty big. The first one I designed is about 3 feet across. Here is a picture of it:
Since the laser-cutter I use only has a 24x12 bed size, I needed to split the gear up into 10 different sections, plus a section in the middle into which all 10 outer sections fit. I made 2 identical layers (each 1/4 in thick), and then staggered them, so the bottom layer supports the top layer when glued.
I also added some dark paper in each hexagon, to add some visual interest.
I'm happy with how this one turned out, so I'm off to design the next gear.
