  • Using the Shapeoko, I drilled out the mounting holes for the new wasteboard. 
  • And here is an example why you should pay attention in math class…
  • I installed a fly cutter into the spindle and started flattening the new wasteboard.

  • And a new piece to add to my art gallery…

Rapid Prototyping 


I made this bracket to mount a Raspberry Pi Zero W to the side of a TV. The idea was to remove the back TV cover screws on the bottom left hand corner and replace it with a longer screw to accommodate the bracket. 


One small design flaw though…


Oh well, by to Sketchup and redesign.
