so i made this friday may 12th, but i've been working on the design and test cuts out of cardboard and scrap for a week or so.
My three year old nephew was having his birthday party on saturday and it was dinosaur themed. We have a no more toy present agreement with my brother-in-law for his kids and our kids. But i felt this didn't really violate that agreement as it was "handmade", using a laser. Anyway I feel it came out fantastic.
i cut it on the thunder laser, its made from 2 pieces of 1/4" plywood. Top Layer i think was a birch veneer and bottom layer was a maple veneer. I used 1/4-20 nylon Screws and Acorn Nuts as the finger pulls.
I cut out recesses in the maple bottom piece for the screw heads to sit. total time on laser was about 18 minutes.
I then used Titebond 3 and some clamps and weights to glue the two pieces together, had to use some superglue when i got home as one piece in the middle didn't get clamped properly.
I delivered it to him on saturday and the little kid loved it, and everyone else at the party was thoroughly impressed.
