Colibri kinetic sculpture, updated 15.02.2020

Workshop > Projects
Original designed by Derek Hugger

I will build this sculpture by using 3 respectively 4 mm thick poplar plywood. To get the required thickness I will glue the laser cut parts together. A first test was done today, 23.11.2019. The plans by Derek Hugger are in inches and I need to compromise finding matching metric parts or material.

Well, I will use 3 mm plywood. The laser cutting leaves some burn marks on the underside. To reduce finish work one "layer" of the plywood will be lasered inverse to get two unburned outer layers.
