Construction Timeline: Laser Cut Nightstand

For my nightstand, I already have my pieces sketched up and designed other than the actual design that will be engraved into the pieces. As for my schedule:

April 6-9: Sourcing materials and finish the engraving design.

April 10-16: Laser cut and etch all materials that will be used. Begin to treat the wood.

April 17-23: Finish treating the wood, assemble pieces into the final product, and create a presentation.

    It seems like you had a very clear and well thought-out plan for the project, and it seems like you allocated enough time for each step. From what I saw of the project, it sounds like things went fairly smoothly and you were able to follow this process pretty closely.

    Seems like you know exactly what you need! from what I’ve heard, the laser cutter is going to be a very popular tool here in the next few weeks and might be hard to get access to in a timely manner. Do you have a back up plan if, for some reason, you are unable to make it to the laser cutter when you plan to?

    Hi Kyle! It seems like you are well organized and have a pretty clear idea of what your project schedule will be. Your current progress shows your perseverance to get everything done in a timely manner. It may be useful to include a graphic of your timeline and a bit more explanation on your project steps (i.e. How will you go about sourcing materials? ). Images of your prototype would be neat as well!
