I started this project with a trip to the kmart down the street – as suggested.
I was immediately impressed with possibilities and found myself wandering aisle after aisle continually discovering another potential enclosure.
There were lots of options:
I ended up purchasing a soap container that I found in the travel section of the pharmacy. I wasn’t super impressed with the aesthetics but I liked the shape of it and the semi-transparency of the the white plastic.
I had materials.
So I got started.
First I measured.
Then I came up with a pattern for the laser cutter.
I cut out two colors of (free) acrylic because I wanted to test two designs.
I decided I liked the black acrylic and went ahead and got it wired up. My design worked out well. Everything fit perfectly into place.
To keep the plate at the right height I used hot glue to make a lip in the corners of my soap box. This also created a sticky surface which helps keep the plate semi-attached to the soap box.
just for you Ben….
