Not 100% on how I want to finish this. I think I’m going to try putting ‘distressed’ pattern paper behind each cutout then finish the top layer with either a brown or black wood dye. I think black just because arcade cabinets would have been that.
Through hole cut through 1/4" plywood (would use 1/8 if I did it again) with a clean uncut sheet of the same plywood behind it.
1/8" flat endmill, 60ipm (20 plunge), .1" depth of cut in baltic birch plywood, speed ~5 on the dewalt router
