For the last couple of months I have been buying components to build the Yocto Roland TR-808 clone. The last thing that has been missing, as far as I know, was the acrylic enclosure.
I first thought I would order it online, but the places I found only seemed to have glossy acrylic (or at least glossy on at least one side). As I wanted a matte finish to avoid greasy fingerprints I waited. A couple of weeks ago I remembered that we had a laser cutter at the company I work at (albeit in another department). I talked to the guy in charge and asked if it would be possible to use the laser cutter if I provided materials and he agreed, probably that it was more fun than the regular standard stuff they cut. He helped me find acrylic that was laminated with a matte finish. So yesterday we decided it was time to do the cutting and I think it turned out really nicely. I will document the build process here, stay tuned!
Here are some images from the laser cutting process
