2023-12-05 (Tu) EWC_Cyberdeck Panel holder for screen and MIDI

I considered hardboard for the surface that would hold my screen and MIDI sections, but I bought 1/4" (6mm) birch plywood, which should be more structurally sound. I outlined a segment to hold both units and cut out the most obvious knot. The board will also become the back and bottom pieces, but I wanted to test how clean I can make the cuts before committing more work to the panel. I marked the hole positions for the MIDI section by laying out a miscut copy, but the holes aligned, so it was easy to push a pencil through to mark the plywood. The screen section was trickier, and I had to extend the graphite of a mechanical pencil to reach through the top and draw on the wood.
