Just finished a project over the course of many, many weeks! And my first extensive project…a depth map of a lake where my folks live.
I spent most of the time working on cleaning up the dataset contours, designing the legend, and making sure it was 100% clean, vector design. 5 layers of medium PG maple ply (plus the legend) and one of medium PG cherry ply for the top and sides. Also some material savings with extra cutouts that you can see on the last, back side image.
Only cut everything one time, which was a calculated miracle.
Everything was glued with either Titebond or CA depending on the surface area and holding power needed. The side frame was a tweaked box layout I created in MakerCase, everything else done in Inkscape.
I also properly vectorized the legend compass and will share that file shortly. Thanks for all the forum inspiration along the way!
