Step 1: Selecting the Disc and Taking Appropriate Measurements.
Step 2: Selecting the Wood and Cutting to Length.
First off i marked the 0.5cm along the length of the which will be routed out later to accept the disc.
I used a saw which allowed me to easily cut the 45 degrees, but it's easy enough to work out if you don't have one.
If using shaped wood like myself it's very important to get the angles right so the shape of the wood meets up correctly at the joints!
So once all the pieces are cut you should have two 8cm and two 8.4cm which are ready for rounding.
Step 3: Routing Out Excess Wood and Frame Assembly.
I've set the router and cut the desired depth (0.3 ~0.4ish) and rigged it so I have the wood clamped level so the cut is the correct depth.
Once all pieces are finished I used a standard wood glue to do two sections at a time making sure it was all straight!
Step 4: Finishing Touches.
The floppy disc was secured with a small amount of wood glue and staples.
I also attached small pieces of stick on felt to give some protection against scratching grandma's coffee table.
