Made my first attempt at making a walnut arduino case. Had a bit of fitting issue i’ll have to modify and then also some tearout, i’ll have to make the front slightly thicker to prevent this but overall it went pretty well. Take a look
After changing around the cam program, messing with some different bits and grain orientations I finally have a chip out free version of the case, unfortunately it takes quite a bit longer to cut out.
Update: I am finally happy with the fit and finish of these cases so i’ll make a small batch 12 or so up in the next few days
Update: Made a batch up, now I just need lids and some finish. For finish I have a nice spray setup but for a batch this small it won’t save me any time to use it so I think i’ll use a wipe on finish 3 coats or so.
Update: After a couple of coats of finish the cases are really starting to look nice. A home worthy of an arduino. I have to give @addidis credit for this clever name “Hard Wooduino” seems like a fitting name for these cases. The first batch was made mostly for friends, however there has been decent interest with these. Making them individually isn’t really worth it because it takes a while between the milling, sanding, 3 coats of finish etc but I am considering making up another larger batch.
