Laser Cut Medal Hanger

(Perhaps in a fit of vanity) I decided that a medal hanging solution, for my office, was a good idea.

 

I often run in marathons and half marathons and the finishers’ medals from these are usually worn for an hour then placed in a drawer indefinitely. I thought a way of displaying these medals would be a good thing. Luckily I had access to a laser cutter and some 2mm thick stainless steel.

The slogan “Run, Eat, Sleep, Repeat” is perhaps an overused one, and litters the front of various running related gifts (t-shirts, mugs, stickers etc), but then again it wouldn’t be so popular if it wasn’t so apt (a lot of training is required for these races).

The finished cut piece was secured to the wall using rawl plugs and spacer, overall I think it looks pretty good.
