Plywood panel linking joint for laser or router

Plywood panel linking joint for laser or router by cnckevin Aug 8, 2012

Description

A new joint concept for linking panels together which lie in the same plane.

The squggly parts stretch ever so slightly like a spring to pull the panels together with a decent amount of force.

As a bonus, it’s laser cutter friendly. This joint could make it easier to build up large objects off of a smaller machine or from pieces of scrap.

This could also be suitable for something like a room divider panel, adult scale construction set, or maybe even a trampoline(!)

Instructions

The notches that recieve the squiggly "springs" are elongated to provide adequate force in 1/2" chinese birch plywood.

If you want to use a thinner or more flexible material, you will need to make these notches longer.

If you want to use a thicker or less flexible material, you will need to make these notches shorter.

A good step for adjustment in plywood might be around 0.015". Again, work in progress :)
