The first time I came to FabLab I didn't know where it was, and there was no sign inside the building to guide me. With FabCreation's theme of "Hack your Lab", I found it obvious to not let others have the same trouble finding it as I had.

Mouthbow(or musical bow) is an ancient and simple string musical instrument. It consists of a string supported by a flexible stick 0.5 to 3 m long, and strung end to end with a taut cord. Usually made out of wood. Often, it is a normal archery bow used for music rather than as a weapon.
My main design consists of 2 tunable strings supported by a wooden stick, plus some additional parts, that might vary acoustics of the sound of the strings. Another design suppose to have a string strung end to end in a space between two wooden side covers.
This was my very first lasercut projects that I made during one of the FabLab open house sessions.
I first made a 2 layer holder for 3x9Volts batteries where the batteries fits like a glove. I then decided to play around with acrylic bending and made a flaming case for my arduino. The case just looks cool but has nothing practical to it since it makes the access to the output pins more difficult. I normally use this Arduino together with a prototype shield to "burn" other arduino chips like the ATtiny85.
Logoed Arduino Bumper designed for protecting the Arduino's during usage. The logoed version is for displaying ownership during library checkouts. That's right we're going to have Arduino's available at our local library.
