Nice project. What kind of wood did you use for this?

Looks to be made from MDF, then maybe sealed?

It is MDF. It was spray painted to seal it off.

Sorry this might be a dumb question but as I don't have much experience - with cutting out all the holes how would you hold the entire piece down? I mean every time you cut out an area won't it get caught in the end mill? I don't see any tabs on the plan. Thanks

Every time a piece is cut out you do risk the piece getting caught by the bit and it take off flying. I would suggest you adding tabs to fit your needs.

We don't get the create file to be able to add tabs. Or am I missing something.

There are no tabs on the C2D file. I made it that way so you can add your own. I just downloaded the file and had no trouble adding tabs so I'm not sure why you are not able to add tabs.

Looks like a fun project, thanks
