Next time, try cutting pine with a 2flute downcut endmill. They make much cleaner edges on soft woods.

Wow, so simple, yet so cool. This could make for a cool pregnancy announcement idea too. Ship your closest friends and family some name cubes, and let them figure out what it means! :D

What are you controlling it with? (seen at around the 1 minute mark)

I'm looking to find something better than dedicating an old computer for the task.

I installed the win X preview instead of the Win 8.1 it came with. The best thing is it comes with a separate fullsize USB port so you can charge and connect to the arduino without external USB splitters and such.

I recommend it.

the only thing i could hold against it is the small screen -> small buttons. But for the price itis extremely effective;

Thank you. That looks great for this application.

edit: thanks again. Went to Microcenter today and picked one up. I ended up going for the 8-inch screen version, hoping the slightly bigger screen might help. Beats all the other things I was looking at using for this.
