I'm really impressed with the router work. I know how difficult it is to do channels like that in aluminum. That motherboard tray turned out nice as well.

Well, I'm going to have to buy some more aluminum. I didn't make it very far into the second piece before completely ruining it. Someone want to lend me $2k so I can build a CNC router?

I'm still pretty much a n00b when it comes to milling so I'm worried about materials that are difficult to machine. Alu that's easy to bend is usually crap to machine. I'm thinking the best solution...

Then I started on...
