I don't know what you mean I wasn't even thinking of adding an actuator to the gpio on the RPi or asking bill how they work

Thanks, the idea's keep coming so by the time it's finished it may not be quite the same as the concept. I still haven't made up my mind. No real progress today just some sanding as I've been to the London bike show

UPDATE 19/02/13

OK, I have been doing a bit of minor shaping and sanding. The grain in the wood has come out quite nicely, although there's some more sanding to do, it's very little sanding and compared to D33P THOUGHT t'is a doddle.


I plan to use a dark wax to finish off Thing, hopefully it will draw out the grain even more and a slight sheen should help the light reflect off the contours



Notice the crack ? that was there from day one, while the hand was still in rough form, I kinda liked it and was going to leave it, now it's more refined the crack looks terrible. So this will be filled and sanded when I go down to the final grade on the sanding.



That's it for this update, I still need to order up the RPi and then I can get cracking on the case

Laters....

You very nearly swayed me with the robot hand idea, filling the crack with hair might be a mod too far, however sticking the hair on the inside and fitting an actuator might work

You can fill that crack with mixture of superglue and wooden dust.

First,fill that gap with super glue and than put some wooden dust over it. You can even sand it before glue dries-that will give nice finish.

I had considered that, but being new to woodworking didn't fancy it being successfull. I don't know how the wax would take to the glue/sawdust mix. I don't really want to varnish it. All that sticky stuff all over the hand (ohh dear this project log just hit a new low)

UPDATE 22/02/13

UPDATE 22/02/13

OK, the hand is near enough finished, I'll do the final adjustments and waxing when I have completed the case. I have been working on the final design for the box (see sketch)



I was just going to sandwich the RPi in two layers of acrylic, but I had a niggling thought that it wouldn't do.... you know what it's like when your not quite happy with something in a build !!

The new design is a split front panel housing a mesh fan cover, I will be using a small chipset fan and run it off the RPi, it has an LED on the fan and so will bling up the build a lil.



I will drill holes into the other half of the front panel (raspberry logo) to allow some airflow through the case and a small heat sink fitted to the CPU to allow the RPi to run at the claimed 1GHz overclock.

The mesh was ripped from an old logitech pc speaker system that will never get any use again and I'm sure I can rob more bits and material for other builds



The edges will be wood and will be split though the center to allow the ports to fit snugly.

As for colour I'm thinking of using yellow for the left hand side and a mid tint on the right, I feel that it will contrast against the dark wax that I will use on Thing.

UPDATE 24/02/13

Small update, Still waiting for the RPi to be delivered, so in the mean time i have finished off the hand part of the build, I went with filler for the cracks and I'm pleased with the result. I did try a dark wax to give some more colour, but it looked horrendous, so bad that I'm not posting pics of the result. So the hand got sanded down again but on a plus point the dark wax did highlight all the low points and tool marks that I missed on the first sanding.

You can see the cracks are now filled and it looks sooo much better



I have gone with a natural beeswax finish and it has lifted the grain from the wood, it does mean that I have to rethink the colour of the plexi and I'm likely to use the same smoked tint that I still have off cuts from D33P THOUGHT.





With the hand now finished I'm itching to get my hands on the Pi, It'd better turn up soon as the plans and Ideas change every five minutes, At the moment I have another Idea for a top panel, so I'll probably make both and put it up to a poll (maybe)

Cheers Pranja, That is the final colour. I had used a dark wax but it just looked bad (really bad) I won't be painting it. I do like the grain showing through, i'll change the colour of the plexi instead
