Nice article, glad to see piloux make the front page.
I hope Blackmesa hl2 does aswell, it's just as incredible
One of my favorite mods!
Well written as well. Kudos!
I really like the case. Not extreamlly flashy, and it looks great.
thats always been my favourite case mod!
hope to see HL2 mod on the front page in the future too!
Very nice, with an awful lot of work - wood can be such a pain to get tidy!
I have to admit that having spent all that time preparing the wood that to hide it seems a bit of shame. Its such a beautiful medium and when polished looks ace (yup - I like wood!)
However nothing can detract from the niceness of the case; congrats - an excellent job.
PS: My wooden case is waiting on funds - or the tree to grow! Which ever comes first!
very sweet, especially like the way the internals were put in ab fab m8
the making a wood and plexi sandwich for the front and top is truely inspired, just such a cool effect - the colour looks just right for what has been done but it just begs the question what it would look like if it was left bare wood and polished?
great also to see projects reaching the front pages!
Would would you say was your biggest problem? Would be nice for you to jot a few of themn down so we can learn from your experiences.
As an aside - do you think a different type of wood (maybe a hardwood) would have acted differently to the heat problem. Was the pine seasoned or 'new.' Just trying to think around some of the problems wood presents when exposed to heat.
I had a major catch up on the HL2 case last night 20~pages behind I was! I was thinking to myself, Philoux' picture quality etc etc would make his projects ideal for a bit frontpage!
Exelent article, really nice original work!
The workmanship is great, Cant wait to see more of his work
Congrats Piloux, a well deserved spotlight.
love the case m8, I'd never have the patience to put all that effort in starting from the ground up! Kudos
Hi and thank you very much for comments
I don't know if other type of wood get the result with heat but I think the problem doesn't come from wood itself but with the melting of wood, acrylic and paint because wood and acrylic doesn't react/extend the same way with heat and then the junction paint cracks...
But what's up with the tiny pictures, thought it was broken thumbnails at first... Is Bit-tech running out of bandwidth?
Macro can confirm, but the pictures are probably what were supplied..
As for bandwidth.. pff, we eat that for breakfast.
Ah, got worried there for a second
That was one of the things I liked about this project log...it didnt take 10 mins per page to load on my poor 56k
Hi and thanks , about the pics I can send biggest to Macro if needed
wonderfull job...one of the best mods i have seen in a long time
What a nice case!! It also answered a question I had on masking off embedded plastic parts, so was useful too!
