    The more I see these wooden mods, the more I wish I paid more attention in woodwork in school. This looks absolutely beautiful.

    Well Done!

    You got me that is totally awesome, no that is amazingly stylish. If you made those, you would sell them.

    Very nice workmanship. Just as an idea, the next one you build could intergrate a cpu temperature guage into the dial maybe. You are going to do another case I assume?

    Thank you for the kind comments.

    I am working on plans for another one right now. I'm trying to figure out how much I can syphon from our income tax refund for this!

    The CPU temp is an original idea. The next one however is not going to be a radio looking mod. I am working on something a bit different, albeit again with wood on the outside.

    Beautiful case! The more I see retro looking wooden cases the more I want to build one.

    yeah great work, even if its not something I would like myself (matter of taste, really). I enjoy looking at good quality work.

    Excellent! Looks like you had a lot of fun building it. Congratz on the Engadget article.

    I appreciate that Jeffrey. I wish I could pick you brain one on one regarding your excellent veneer work on Ingraham. The finish on that case is beautiful.
