    Black Plastic loom in (1/4" and 1/2" diameter) will be embedded and intertwined throughout the bezel and top panel. The entire skull will be painted matte black

    I originally thought he would use the power and reset buttons with oranges LEDs as "eyes".

    Fantastic project bill, you are overkilling the details as always! Do not listen to the non-believers that want their own case with a few pretty LEDs to put on display, they should have gone to me for that :lol:

    I really am glad to see someone else with a lifesize human skull. I have a couple for my steampunk projects.

    Rods through the head remind me of a friend who broke his neck in a Harley crash and had to have a medical HALO surgically screwed to his skull. We would bring a Gallon of vodka and the nurses would supply the orange juice. Seems the security guards were 'elsewhere'.

    Evil looking for months but he recovered as well as any of us ever have.
    I wonder if Giger ever saw a HALO?

    Thanks dudes!

    I carved a basic shape first, for the bezel. Then I'll carve and sculpt notches and crevices into it

    I wish that MNPCTECH had opened another set of their doors in Calgary, AB Canada. I would totally work there for my 4 months off college every year, then once I am done college, I will gladly take up permanent position there...you rock guys!!!

    Cold enough in 'Skinnyapolis' - Calgary can get worse.

    Stay in the US Bill, shipping from Canada is a righteous pain!

    I have to agree with John...We just had this freak blizzard like storm yesturday, but it was all over in an hour and left us with a foot of snow. But the weather turns around really fast in Calgary but to what no one can tell. It could get better or worse.

    Although I don't know about shipping...because I have never shipped to anywhere before...

    But still, Alberta especially Calgary could use some diversity in the types of work available here since it all revolves around Oil and Gas, I am sick and tired of all the Oil and Gas jobs. I am a modder and I need something that can satisfy my hunger for modding. Hell, I will even do robotics if I have to...
