Laser-Cut "Music Lead Sheet" Magnets

Introduction: Laser-Cut "Music Lead Sheet" Magnets

About: Arduino and Othermill enthusiast.

I made it at Techshop SF!!

Here is the full video tutorial.  You can watch it instead of going through the steps in this tutorial.  Your choice.

I tried to make a "video instructible" but I couldn't figure out how to make that work, so I'm trying it this way.

The complete pdf of all these instructions is in the pdf attached.
