So, woke up a little early today and continued the project. Just a small one and gonna continue in the evening, about 4/5 hours from now cuz I had to go on a meeting with a few pals of mine. By the way, since most of you guys said that I posted a lot of unneeded pics, thanks for informing me btw :D, so here's the pics of my morning work.

height and width of the attachment

So here's why I couldn't cut the acrylic properly yesterday, its because of the blade was already blunt........duh

IMG_1039.jpg

So I went down to the store and bought a new blade :D just around 1 dollar, very impressive price :D

IMG_1040.jpg

and fitted it to another piece of wood

IMG_1041.jpg

by the way, how are my camera effects?

so here is the leftover piece

IMG_1045.jpg

IMG_1046.jpg

sketched

IMG_1047.jpg

out :D in less than 10 minutes

IMG_1048.jpg

cut off the middle part

IMG_1049.jpg

in this case, I'll be only cutting the middle part and the left side and left off the right side, as shown (pointed with scissors )

IMG_1050.jpg

ok, its bend and broken, I had to break it to get the middle part off

but some pvc pipe glue will do

IMG_1051.jpg

so, here's a small update from me for today :D stay tuned tomorrow for more small updates :D

C ya
