A refresher on how I cut panels. A stationary fence used with a finger fence and razor saw. It takes about 45 minutes for each cut. The result is a very clean edged cut that promotes adhesion for the following veneer layer. Power saws rip up plywood along the edges and thus lose a significant percentage of adhesion surface where it is needed most. Did I just say thus? Damn. Watching too many shows on the BBC.
Identical panels. I mark the corners that are factory laser cut so they can be matched up later.
First course for the sides.
Second course creating a pocket for the USB ports. Ends are criss-crossed.
Need to figure out how to do better close ups on this new camera.
Same corner as above after third course and trimming.
Fourth side is different. It has to be thinner to accept various switches and plugs.
Gathered up my remaining mahogany. The higher quality stuff comes in thinner widths but these pieces are laser cut so matching edges is easy. An acceptable compromise IMO.
