We use a 100K CnC router to cut ours, so that should give you a little insight.
Best of luck on the build. Post pictures when you are done. thumbsup
Cool, good to know there's some options for painting =)
We don't have a table saw (I think someone stole it from the garage during a remodel a few years back). My dad used an electric circular saw and we've used a file to even out the edges. It seems to be fitting quite snuggly at the moment but we'll see when it's all done.
This first one is more a test unit for me to see the problem areas and whatnot. It's only about a square foot in diameter. Hopefully it all fits together in the end
I will definitely post some pictures once it's done
