Thanks for showing off your work, but have questions. Been looking at those silhouette cutters....is this what you used? If so, what brand/model? Are the ribs balsawood or plastic? Was thinking if you could cut thin styrene (2 to 4 pieces of paper thick, there's lots of possibilities. Like window frames, furniture (dresser, etc.), appliances like a fridge. Make a scale drawing, cut and glue. No more being off just a hair when scratch building stuff like this.

Yes and yes and yes.
This is the Silhouette Cameo. The ribs are .5mm (.020”) styrene sheet. The blade usually doesn’t cut all the way through plastic. But it’s easy to snap the parts loose at the line.
If you haven’t done so already, download the free Cameo software and start goofing around with designs. You’ll need about one day to get a good understanding. But if you’ve used Microsoft Paint, you can use the Silhouette software.
If praise and ridicule did not exist, who would you be?
