After a period away from projects I am finally winning my battle to create time to work on them again. Not a lot of time, but a little is better than none at all!

After a long, protracted affair I finally managed to get Jinx's splendid 3D Google Sketchup files converted to 2D Illustrator files, and get it laser cut in trusty 6mm MDF.

Converting the files using some free software ended up being the solution, but it has come at a small cost; some of the screw holes don't align, one of the tabs on the back panel does not fit, and the screen hole is too bloody big.

Not to worry though; screw holes can be drilled and tabs can be filed. I have also retained the piece of MDF from the screen hole, so I will create a nice little frame from it to fill the space and make the screen fit!
