Trail – Soft Wood – Laser Cut

DSC_1544 copy

Firstly i tested my designs on thin plywood to make sure that the files were all correct and scaled to the accurate size of my cubes as a whole. I also wanted to see if the detail within my design was distinguishable.  I got 28 cubes cut, allowing me one to test an trial. I found that when i cut into the soft wood I got a lot of raised grain and the laser cutter didn’t cut the wood evenly as a result.  I then trailed if i could make my cubes out of plywood and assemble them side by side, however this would leave the cubes with an unsightly edge, which would disrupt the jigsaw effect.
