    If you can find someone with a laser cutter (a high school or local business maybe?) you can cut the entire piece with ultra precise and clean holes. The heat melts the edges of the cut acrylic and leaves them crystal clear. You would probably need to create a dxf file of the layout, and try a sheet of test holes as the laser beam has a width and cuts the holes slightly larger.

    I've cut everything from lens boards to the framework for a skateboard-wheeled wiper-powered rotary base on the laser cutter at our local high school...

    Maybe far too high tech, I (like maybe many here) enjoy film photography as an antidote to the increasingly digital workplace

    A good idea for larger throughput, but for the amount I might do at a given moment, probably a bit overkill. It took me a bit to suss it out, but with care and patience using a regular drill works okay. I did get one of those "stepped" drill bits but it didn't work well for me.

    5X7 Ambrotype shot with the Voigtlander Petzval lens, which came to me from the local Habitat For Humanity store! (via a friend)
    The fringed Tulips were a gift from a friend who works for Green Gable Gardens in Philomath, OR.
    I shot this on very old "Coffer's #7" Collodion for negatives (A year old), and developed it as a positive. It seems old collodion can still work very well. Exposure was 3 minutes, wide open (No waterhouse stops used)

    Wow. A year old and only 3 minutes exposure? That's impressive. Just like the shot itself!

    Here's one from the weekend I'm happy with.
    The lighting wasn't nearly as dramatic but the long-ish exposure (12 seconds) increased the bloom in the highlights.

    No.
