wow, awesome, I admire your accuracy with wood
This is looking amazing so far!
Long time since last update, will try and make up for it with a longer one then usual
First of I finished all the wood working and added the corner pieces that will be holding the front and back pieces in place
Not a single screw will be used for the wood frame itself its all held together with wood joints so it was really solid even before applying glue.
Here is plexi for the side windows.
This is what it looked like when it was all clamped in for the glue to dry.
I really like how the bends turned out with the different layers.
Front and back are made of some spare material I found, actually have no idea what its called. But Its made up of some kind of plastic in the middle and very thin aluminum on both sides, that made if very easy to machine with wood tools.
Made a wooden jig to help with cutting the holes for the front intake fans, and it worked really well. And thanks Mnpctech for the awesome template
i like this log more and more!
great craftsmanship all around, and well documented too
yes...incredible skills with wood, surgical...and the case shape is very original and perfectly designed, I feel Beast of nature is going to be a top level mod
Thank you guys for the kind words
Looking fantastic already. Will it be bottom and back access only? You could hold the side panel in with slide out rails you could pull from the bottom. Or magnets, but they feel like some magic cheat.
Thanks , will have access to the components mainly from top, and back but sides as well when you don't have the windows installed.
Long time no update
But its finally time to finish this project.
Moterboard tray fresh of the printer.
I used inserts for the screws that will be holding the motherboard in place.
And here is the backplate in place.
Radiator brackets and every thing put together inside the case.
Beast of Nature + wood = perfect match
You should go with a full wood build, no plastic allowed
The mobo tray could be easly replaced with a wood one.... with your skills it's easy peasy lemon squeezy
Hey! Welcome back!
I like the prints. They add a nice contrast. Will you have a reservoir in the gap of the 'Y' brackets?
So cool! so many wood mods come up looking less than stellar. This mod however! exceeds all expectations I agree with @Dot_Kappa You could go all Negan and go with wood But the contrast of printed materials is also nice and they are extremely well designed.
Ima throw 3rd material into the mix...Machined aluminium for contrast But Cheap's is right that bracket from the rad to the tray needs something.....
Yeah I actually thought about it but I also think the contrast is needed to get the look I am going for
Have not decided yet, but its definitely an option I have thought about
Thanks, I really wanted to prove you can make a modern design using wood
Aluminum would be my go to but without a CNC and my printer dialed in, its just way to easy to go with 3d printed parts
Very nice indeed!
