Plain to Pretty: Rubber Band Gun #6 Anodized

Gord over at Gord’s Garage has been busy with home-based anodizing.  It’s some amazing stuff he is doing. I sent him one of the rubber band gun assemblies, and he did an amazing job on it.

In an incredible amount of detail, Gord has written up and photographed the whole process:

  1. Hey Dan, I think I’m going to make a laser-cut acrylic stock to put it in. That way the colors and transparent stock will compliment each other and showcase the anodized aluminum. Thoughts?
