Indeed it looks more and more like a good option, even exciting when one
thinks of artistic potential (e.g., varnish, engraving and even
marquetry as an extreme moding option). I could even see a fashion trend
starting with OpenMoko :)

straight lines with different cutting patterns. I didn't use a guide
