    Hi guys,
    I'd like to share my new job with you. This is a mod that is thrilling me and having so much fun and has as a starting point a wooden frame that I will then cover with oak veneer. Inside I will insert a double liquid loop with many copper details because I really like the copper-wood combination and from this detail the name of the mod has simply come out.
    I already have all the ideas in order but your advice is good :winking:

    Ok to start I realized, with the help of a carpenter, a wooden frame in 20mm mdf divided into two parts. The upper part will house two 3x140 radiators plus all the hardware, while in the lower part I will insert the power supply.

    Ok and now tank.
    Ultimately it is two identical copper plates milled from solid with an excavation for o-rings and all "pulled" by the columns always in copper.
