2018-03-01 (Th) TineBox Laser Cut Musical Cigar Box

Available scrap wood wasn’t large enough to cut the entire file at one time. The tuning staffs were cut as a single block and they came out well. The border of each staff came out cleanly and the numbers shallow enough that they didn’t weaken the wood.

All tuning staffs cut

Lengths of music wire were cut to match the long side of each tuning staff. Eight tines could fit on one side of a cigar box so eight metal pieces were cut. Fourteen tuning staffs were produced but only the eight shortest were used for this iteration.

The lengths of music wire were inserted into the slot created by the main board and the caps. Caps were held down with machine screws and nuts. Every other screw had a washer on top. Grooves in the main board and caps kept the wire straight and overlap from the screw heads ensure the wire was held securely.
