Milling Ukuleles with CNC Router Parts #Makerfaire2016
Make shared this video depicting the Milling of Ukuleles with CNC Router Parts at Maker Faire Bay Area 2016 via Youtube.
The CNC Router Parts team has prepared a great demo of CNC routing technology for Maker Faire Bay Area 2016 and they are going to be sharing it with a number of lucky attendees. Instead of a small little demo piece, CNC Router Parts are creating full size working ukuleles all weekend, using their collection of computer controlled machines.
The ukulele bodies and necks are each being milled layer by layer from solid blocks of maple while attendees watch on. The team brought a plasma cutter also to cut the sound boards (in awesome Makey patterns) from steel for the top of the ukes. The bridge and fretboards are both being milled from aluminum finishing off the project.

Stop breadboarding and soldering – start making immediately! Adafruit’s Circuit Playground is jam-packed with LEDs, sensors, buttons, alligator clip pads and more. Build projects with Circuit Playground in a few minutes with the drag-and-drop MakeCode programming site, learn computer science using the CS Discoveries class on code.org, jump into CircuitPython to learn Python and hardware together, TinyGO, or even use the Arduino IDE. Circuit Playground Express is the newest and best Circuit Playground board, with support for CircuitPython, MakeCode, and Arduino. It has a powerful processor, 10 NeoPixels, mini speaker, InfraRed receive and transmit, two buttons, a switch, 14 alligator clip pads, and lots of sensors: capacitive touch, IR proximity, temperature, light, motion and sound. A whole wide world of electronics and coding is waiting for you, and it fits in the palm of your hand.
