Instrument Stand Components Being Laser Cut

Laser Cutting an Instrument Stand

Yesterday I used the opens source programme ‘Inkscape’ to produce a CAD drawing of the instrument stand, and took the file to Forfar Academy. ┬áThe file was converted for use with one of the department’s laser cutters. ┬áThe stand’s components were then cut from a sheet of 4mm birch plywood.

This production method will be so much faster than cutting the plywood at the band saw, during the Easter holiday banjo construction workshop.
