Constraint 1: The wood I intend on using to create the box is plywood and with the fragility of the wood I am worried it will split when I drill into it.
Constraint 2: The tabs with the numbers on them I planned on using 0.5in thick wood, but the laser cutter only goes up to a thickness of 0.25in.
Constraint 3: Aesthetically I am concerned about burning the wood too much, but at the same time I may go with a rustic sort of aesthetic so the burn marks from the laser cutter may actually fit with the vibe.
Constraint 4: Time is a constraint and that’s why I am trying to utilize the laser cutter because machining will take a considerable amount of time, but with the size of the wood I may need to or I will have to redesign.
Constraint 5: Cost is my last constraint and I really would like to keep the cost under $30, I found that at McGuckin’s Hardware that this may not be feasible and need to look into cheaper options.
