In the third Episode I am plotting paper templates. These templates I then later on glue to the wood, to serve as templates. This way an amateur can create all the necessary cutouts and drill all holes precisely, without needing a CNC controlled mill. It is a good idea to use water-soluable wood glue, because that makes it easy to get rid of the paper templates later.
Please note: All the wooden parts were ordered from a hardware store, cut to size already. Nearly all wooden joints (except those at the suction box and two joints of the electronics compartment) are rectangular. The idea here is to have the hardware store cut most of the wood to size for you, because that minimizes the necessary tools you need to build Libreflip.
