Very nice job. For me, most interesting is digit display through the veneer. Exactly what did you use for veneer? Is it wood or plastic? Thickness?
Thank you. Information is quite complete. It is plastic (PVC) with adhesive on back. How were you able to make display area transparent?

Trying to make a wood turning thin enough for light to pass through - probably (in a practical sense keeping in mind physical strength limitations and skill level of wood turner) not practical. But combining a layer approach with wood and plexiglass or another plastic - that might work!
Nice job and certainly gives me some ideas - since I am a woodworker (and a 3D printer is not in my immediate future), I immediately though of a turned wood knob version. And further I thought this would make a very nice night light for a children's room. All kinds of potential. I did sign up for your 3D printing class and already have Fusion 360 downloaded. Now to reconcile more stuff to do on an already overloaded 'to do' list.
Some interesting ideas here. I have made several versions which are 'single sided', i.e. you have to hold the saw up against the guide. The jig is held in place with clamps. The idea of having a 'track' for the saw is very interesting. As a note, the commercial track guides (some of which do NOT require a special saw) do not require clamps to hold the jig in place which is very nice.
