You should see the edges
It's the scrap chip board / laminate from a "Zebra wood" armoire I junked. It's just what I had laying about, old screw holes and all. I was happy just to be making something, with house repairs and by-law wrangling it was nice to take a break and build something and use my CNC.
I'm interested in trying the bit in plex, per an idea of Jude's to make an edge light "Hack Factory" sign for under the chrome deco / moderne stripe above the front door. I'm a bit worried that the two sides of the letters won't get equal light, but we'll see.
BTW if anyone hase a 45 degree, or less than 60 degree router bit we can barrow / try that would be great.
Something I learned, the nice plastic cases that v-bits come in are really light, prone to be pulled into dust collection systems, and hard to catch even though you can see them progressing once inside said DC tubing. (If you've seen the newest Star Trek movie's "Scotty in the water tube" scene, you know exactly what it was like.)
