    lookin good. monitor in wood will suit very nicely. i think it's just as safe as making the case in wood, as long as all HV connections are well secured & insulated, and venting/internal clearances are provided at least as much as the original plastic case.
    maybe do the keyboard aswell :cooldude:
    cant wait to see the custom panels.... hope im not making ya work too hard :worried:

    ARRGGGHH. You're getting too popular Gunner. :p I can't go on bit-tech EVERY day you know, especially not with my exams!

    Jokes aside, keep up the amazing work. Keep going strong and you'll be done in no time (sadly). My dad is the same way as you (self-taught woodworker) and he can build houses by himself. What does that tell you about the power of determination. :p

    Morphine-Kitty I am impressed with anyone who is self taught. I appreciate your father's work. I am sad too that this is getting very close to a finish. Thank you..

    Well, I'll be watching closely for an update this weekend then. :clap:

    Where would the second panel go? On the side of the case perhaps?
