    Fantastic work! Inspires one such as myself who only got manual tools at my disposal. I almost gave up because of that, but I keep going back to your project log when I feel like I have hit a wall ;)



    One could argue that modification also stands for modifying the idea of stereotype chassi into something else and more. That's what I think when I see a wellplanned mod :)

    This is the first mod and case design I've ever seen that actually makes a computer beautiful. Where Apple is high tech this is purely feel and aesthetics. Wow.
    I applaud you!

    This is an Super Man man:D
    At first, I thought it lacks of ventilation when turning in to a "wardrobe"...
    But when I saw how it open its "wings" I totally :jawdrop:ed

    WOW! Thank you all very much for the wonderful comments. :clap:
    I'm not sure if this is the place to post pics, but I'm sure some of you are interested in
    how CX1 holds up under everyday use. It's been running 24/7 since the 28th of November
    and both my wife and I have been using it for our everyday computing. We love it. :)

    This is the best case I've ever seen. I'd pay a lot money for a case of this quality and design. Every part was crafted perfectly. Congratulations.

    Beautiful stuff! I love the combination of strong industrial lines within the case paired with the smooth curves of the exterior wood finish :) FYI, this has been posted on Engadget!
