In this video, reclaimed materials maker, Tim Sway, and Narwhal Labs’ Jeff Shaw, show how to make beautiful Damascus Micarta using strips of colored felt and resin. Resin-impregnated strips of different-colored fabric are placed in a mold and then pressed together between 3D printed patterns to create the Damascus effect.
Tim’s main project focus is guitars made of largely reclaimed materials. He decided to see how Damascus Micarta might look as a guitar fingerboard. The results are amazing.
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.
