Manufacturing The Slides And Sides

I decided to make the whole lamp from acrylic and cut it on the laser cutter as it’s a Fab Lab piece of equipment. The outside of the lamp being white 3mm and the slides being 3mm and 5mm of different colours. I was going to make the outside from plywood to give it a geeky fabrication look with the burn marks from the laser cutter but after thinking about it I thought it may clash with the bright coloured plastic slides. Another reason for going with the acrylic was that its translucent so will emit some light and I chose the colour white because its a colour that has recently come back into fashion.
