Nice Instructable, and could be used also for Restoration, of old model Radios and Cars, with some more pieces.
A note about it went to my Blog.
And also, notice, on this day's Post, a very good Translator, it is better, because it will translate a word or phrase, as used on many examples, on many different texts:

Thank you for a publication to blog. I have taken screenshot for joy(^^)

good Translator? Me?
When I show the thing which I made online, I feel that I want to convey trifling movement or technique necessary to make it exactly.
So I want to become good at English...

I really like these buttons and the idea of design/make your own. I realise the piece was translated but I personally found the language and descriptions to hard to follow. I am very "arty, crafty but quite technically challenged. Please show us if you make any, I love them.

Thank you for your comment.
And I apologize for my broken English (_ _)
I am the staff of the facilities with a laser cutting machine.
I thought that the digital manufacturing would be difficult for the person who did not like a PC.
Therefore I thought that it should be introduced the digital manufacturing by opening the workshop that the illustration of the freehand drawing and a favorite color became the button.
Your reply is much appreciated. I wish I could attend a workshop. Very interesting.
