I want to build a box that is lightweight, but sturdy. At my disposal I have a laser-cutter, which I want to do the cutting.
My plan is as follows, but I have never done this. I have no idea if this will work, so I'm looking for some advice.
I want to cut the box sides out of wood with a laser cutter using notched edges. However, this wood will be thin and therefore will not be able to hold much weight. To improve the weight bearing capacity of this box I propose to add a layer of honeycomb polypropylene to the base and then add another layer of wood to maintain a rigid bottom surface, thus creating a sandwich of sorts. Does anyone think this will work?
Does anyone have an alternative idea?
