2023-09-30 (Sa) EWC_Cyberdeck Left-hand faceplate

I spent a long time revising the internal parts after I finalized the faceplate layout. I learned a lot from yesterday's debacle. The new pieces should be more rugged and fit correctly.

I had significant trouble cutting plywood on my laser. I tried adjusting settings but mostly succeeded in adding more smoke residue. The solution was to inspect the wood for a harder internal layer, which appeared darker when I held it to a light.

I tested new laser settings on the inspected wood by cutting the internal pieces, and the edges were cleaner than previous cuts. The faceplate and back came out nicely, so I taped off the yellow regions and painted them. The design for the handle top layer did not change, but the paint pattern did, so I made a new copy.
