A Laser cut case for a barebones Pi Monitor - Part 1

I obtained a barebones monitor for the Raspberry PI which consisted of a driver card and the LCD panel itself, along with a secondary switch card and the connecting cables. I could have used a V29 board for this but was specifically after a much smaller screen. So on this occasions I bought a 7 inch bares screen from eBay. Try searching for 7 inch LCD TFT Display HDMI VGA Monitor Screen Kit for Raspberry Pi 3/2 on eBay of you are after one of these screens.

It's all about me...

I'm a 49 year old married father who works with websites for a living. Doing that for work means I dont often update this site, unless I can think of something useful to say. I mostly like taking photos - and most of my internet presence now will be related to that.

Something else?

Dont you find it ironic that people invest so much in bringing you to a website only to give you a list of links to take you elsewhere? So I'm not going to give you a list of my favourite haunts to send you away from this site.
