DIY Arduino 3D Laser Scanner
Nice instructable and video, thanks for sharing. Finished product looks very cool - I like a lot! I have an engine waiting for me to dismantle, and am quite excited about all the various cool parts I will find - I'm just not looking forward to the de-greasing and cleaning which is a nasty business in my experience. Though while my parents are on holiday I am tempted to try the dishwasher ;) Thanks again, good work.

Welcome to CNC
You can use wood as soon as you cut it - It just depends what you are using it for, moisture content when you cut it, how it is stored, species, thickness, etc. etc. A million variables as to whether you SHOULD use it or not...

Hi Bpark1000, interesting stuff. I hadn't come across this stuff before, which surprised me. Seems it is mainly used by turners to get green bowls stable. Looking at it, immersing a piece that big would be really quite expensive. I have to admit the splits and cracks and warping is what makes the whole thing 'fun' for me - I like having to think of ways to creatively deal with it and make the 'faults' into features ;) The polyethylene glycol looks like it could be cool for projects that would use a thin cross section slices though... I need to do more research, check out how nasty the chemicals are etc before I'm sold on the idea...
Thanks deemon :) No, not comprehensively. I left it run while playing music for a whole evening (probably 4 hours) without them running out though. The arduino pack should last really quite long (I am using 4x 2000mAH NiHM aa batteries in each pack - that's a lot compared to the 9V battery and voltage regulator solution that people often seem to go for!). The LED pack is the same and I haven't had to recharge yet... The life would depend how loud the music is and the style of music (how many of the leds are on and how much of the time).
Hi Raitis, thanks for the comment. The LED's are adafruit neopixels, and if you wire them to Adafruit's fairly detailed specs they should be good (resistor in series with the control signal and 1000uF cap in parallel with a dedicated power supply). Time will tell of course... The finish is Hardwax Oil, or Polyx Oil. I use it on most of my wooden projects apart from those going outside or in a bathroom or something... I like it a lot :)
Thanks Seamstar :)
