It's been a while since I have posted an update... I've been working on lots of other projects.

One of my recent projects includes a laser cut faceplate from Ponoko, so I figured I may as well save on shipping and batch something else. Stubby is the obvious candidate for this. I have made some modifications to the original frame to be better suited for laser cutting (removed doubled-up lines, added some engraving text, etc). Two frames fit nicely on a Ponoko P2 template size.

I have just made the order today, so have not yet confirmed that it works properly, but I think that it should as long as I have not messed up the measurements somewhere. If you are interested in trying it out yourself, you can grab the .dxf file from the git repo (right click and select 'save link as' - it is a .dxf, which the browser tries to open as text).

I can't wait to see how your cut turns out mate - I am eager to make a stubby for myself, but am terrible at fabrication!

What thickness material have you opted for?

  Are you sure? yes | no

I'm using the 2.7mm bamboo plywood from ponoko.
