Step 7: Cut a Test

Picture of Cut a Test
I had my wood pieces laser cut.  There are services online that will cut your shapes and send them to you.  I have access to one for personal use so I unfortunately cannot speak to which service will work best for a project like this.

One thing I cannot stress enough with a project like this is make a test sample out of something light weight and easy to cut like chip board so you know if there are layout or sizing errors.  Even if you use a laser cutting service, you can print out a cardstock/paper model on your home printer for a test run.
