Project Update #4 – Marking & Cutting

Project Update #4 - Marking & Cutting

By: Leila Plunkett

In order to cut we needed to measure and mark all of our material. We marked exact measurements on to our wood and labeled each one. After doing that, we drew a straight line across the wood to make it easier and more precise when we cut.

The next step in our project was to cut the material that we chose. For this step we used a handheld saw and two clamps. We cut along the lines that we previously made.

Engineering is involved in this because our final project must be designed and created by us and this is a part of the final product.
