What the right material for me?
What type of material is best for making robots, small boxes, and platforms?
What inexpensive tools can I buy for cutting them?
1/4 or 1/8 inch acrylic would be perfect, but I don't have a laser cutter. Can you cut small pieces of acrylic with a handsaw?
Same thing with wood, I have no idea how to make cut small pieces properly.
Metal? Is that even an option?
Wood seems to be my only option but I don't know where to get it or how to cut it.
If I buy 1/8 inch ply I cutting plywood is annoying, since it's made up of layers.
Is 1/8 plywood what I want to use? Is there some other type of thin wood I should use?
Basswood is OK but most of the time it's too thin and very expensive.
I have a good dremel but trying to cut along a strait line with those dumb grinding wheels is very difficult.
Where can I buy really small nuts, bolts, and washers to use with wood/acrylic?
