2023-01-29 (Su) EWC_Box Faceplate cutting

I added the "electronic wind chimes" symbol to the faceplate, double-checked my measurements, and cut it with the laser. The process went smoothly the second time, but my first run did not penetrate the wood, so the pieces that were supposed to fall away remained stuck. I cut nine rectangles to a piece of scrap to test if I could mount keyswitches into the plywood, and they held securely. I forgot to include a voltage display, but it would have been ornamental. I do not have a way to keep the screen in place, so I may have to cut an additional piece that I can use to sandwich the screen.
