Switch Labels

Finishing up the Instrument pod is coming right up. I have been toying with ways to label the switches and decided to try employing my CNC router. This current trial involved taking sheets of polystyrene, which can be found on Amazon for about $0.40/sheet.
Paint the white sheets with a couple of heavy-ish coats of satin black, then route the labels with a very fine point engraving bit. It took a couple of tries to get the right bit and the correct depth, but I am quite satisfied with the results.

Since I have the detailed CAD for the panels I can easily come up with shapes that surround the entire switch area and are held in place by the switches. These are just test pieces, but I think I will go with this approach.
