    Hello.
    What would be the best way to produce something similar to the attached image?
    We have a cnc machine and a laser to engrave the logos.
    The client states that the panels should be able to slide in the tracks. Screenshot_2.jpg


    i'm thinking about a table saw.
    Am I right? Screenshot_3.jpg

    I'd say you're on the right track. Just make sure you leave enough room to compensate for swelling, unless you plan to seal them entirely.

    I'm wondering if you could modify hardwood flooring pieces since they're close to net size and shape...it would save a lot of work.

    Unless when you want to change one out in the middle somewhere, you could model them after ZIP lock letters and track. Make the track and recessed portion of the panel to fit so you can slide up and in and then sit back down with proper spacing for doing it from anywhere on the entire display.

    A table router would be a much better option for the rabbit joints and others

    A table saw with a dado blade would be the easy way to go.
