Step 2: Cut out the file on the ShopBot

Throw your plywood onto your router table and get to work!
I assume you know how to operate it.

I used a 1/4" upcut end mill. This has left a messy cut that will require some sanding to clean up.
I also thought that I could pick up .25" spline at the local hardware store (turns out I can't) so I routed 1/4" grooves into the frames as well. If you have a tool that will cut appropriately sized grooves this would be a good time to do it, otherwise, skip that step and just cut out the frames.
Cool Instructable. I'm making my own printing shop now. I'd like to know if the organza works well. Can you strecht it tight? it wears out?
awesome! I don't understand it completely but very interesting nonetheless.
Looks crazy :0
