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.  The file was converted for use with one of the department’s laser cutters.  The 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.
