Great job!

I think that you would have to low your camera's ISO/gain! It will improve that grey grain!
Discworld?? I donīt know why, but Iīll just take that as a compliment. About the pictures, I have a really old compact camera and itīs full of sh*t... The grain comes from bad resolution and a lot of sharpening in PS. But I actually like to keep the WIP-photos bad... The final shots will make a really good impression that way

Small update:


Glued the I/O panels in the bottom and used a filler for the gaps.


Milled a hole in the plateau for I/O cables


Two 16mm holes for the hoses...


And this is for hiding those ugly chromy I/O sockets on the mb. Some pieces of 7mm walnut.


Cut and glued them together in an angle.


Sanded another angle from the back, and added a fitting backpiece.


This is how itīll look like. I like it!


From behind.

Laterz!

Iīve come up with some designs for the foot, but I canīt really decide. Any thoughts?


Alt 1. The classic one... Youīve seen it on previous builds. But I like it, itīs plain and elegant.


Alt. 2 The reaching one. A bit more "up" to it I guess


Alt 3. The organic one... I donīt know about this one, but itīs something new.


Alt 4. The six legged one... Looks like a squid somehow, but I kinda like it anyway.


Hereīs an animation I made for you guys, just for the fun of it

Alt 4 I think quizz, the others are nice but 4 looks good to me.

Animation made me lol, can picture the giddy rig scuffling around a room LMAO, needs a techno beat & flashing lights.

Oh yeah, the IO cover looks awesome BTW.

I like the dancing computer option.

I would vote that you do Alt3, but with six legs. Definitely six legs is the way to go.
You do great work!

I kinda like Alt2 - but maybe with 6 legs? kinda agree with the others: six legs seems to work better than4.

Alt 3 - with 5 or 6 legs. I think the curvy shape of the feet would look good with the dome on top.
But 4 legs is just wrong, just like 4 spokes on a rim for a car!
Beautifull work man!

I agree on alt3 as Angle says, because the curved legs go with the curved dome.

Great work.

Thanks for all the replies guys, really appreciated!!

Ok, so itīs alt.5 then, the dancing fidgety rig


Seriously, Iīll go for six legs then. Personally, Iīd go for alt 4, but thatīs me thinking safe I guess. The curved one would look more interesting in a way, but itīs almost too much, especially with six legs I think. Very squiddy-like. Alt 4 WILL look more stable and clean, and it kinda resembles the roots of a tree. Hmm... Got some more thinking to do. Thanks again mates!!

Great wood working skills, I'm looking forward to seeing more keep up the good work and I think Alt 3 is nice.

Thank you friend!


I finally decided to go with alt 4. I like the simplicity and steadiness. This is how I made the foot:


Made a six sided rod out of birch on the table router. Had to be accurate, and this was acctually a bit hard to make.


Took a piece of walnut


Sanded it


Split it in three


Then just cut the three into six. I also turned a bit of the rod on top for mounting it later. Then I cut it to the lenght of 130mm.


Walnut is very light weighted, so I made some small metal rods for extra weight.


Put them in there.


When I tested the construction, the pegs where too long and created a gap between rod and feet. But I liked the expression of it very much, so now Iīm thinking about using it. Iīm thinking about using 6mm copper rods instead of regular pegs. What do you guys think?


From under


From above


Close up



Some paint work done aswell.




From birch...


.. to black!


Also painted the inner construction


Took what I could find and used orange as primer


Then two layers of "ancient white"


Close up.



Laterzzz / Quizz

Nice work! The pegs don't look bad, but I think I would use regular dowel instead of the fluted ones, but that's just me. I won't lie, though, I was hoping to see some sliding dovetails ;-)

When you say you sanded the walnut, did you actually sand it to that shape? No band saw to remove most of it? That must have taken some time...

Youīre right, sliding dovetails wouldīve been ideal for this foot. Would look great from under also... if you were ever to look there But the dowels made me noticed that gap effect, so Iīm glad I did it. Btw, as I wrote above, Iīm not going to use those wooden dowels, but copper ones. Itīll look nice I think. And yeah, I put it in a bandsaw before sanding. Iīm just lazzzzy when typing... You my friend, are very observant =)
