    I made this plan back in February and just decided to go through with it a week ago.

    It's oak even though it kind of looks like pine in the photo...

    awesome! Definitly makes it alto easier to show off your system, and upgrades will be a breeze too.

    Welcome to Bit-Tech.:D
    Solid oak=:thumb:
    I like the way you ran the hoses. It's very clean. The res is cool too.
    I'd like to see a bit more of the insides behind the door.

    Thank you for the complements guys!
    I've been looking at some of modding here, Good Stuff!!

    It's not Solid Oak it's oak plywood still not cheap at $75 a sheet and walnut plywood which I would of liked to of used $160 a sheet maybe next time...

    You had to ask didn't you, LOL
    As for behind THE DOOR well that's top secret, imagine a jungle of vines and branches or if you were to pop off a service door on the Enterprise, Just kidding it's not that bad but I'm not going to use much wire management down there unless I get really bored everything is mounted, cut a square hole in the back for the PSU it's just like in a case, hardrives I made a small acrylic holder to mount them as of right now it's good enough to service anything if needed ;)

    I love how clean and tidy it looks, I can't help but notice that in the photos, the pumps and rads are disconnected, and I can't see any tubing going below the top shelf...

    Are you sure those are the temps you're getting? :p

    About 428 days or 1 year 2 months and 2 days ago I was hired as an engineer (not really) at a company that make aluminum storefront, sunshades, doors, and curtain wall . I'm really an just an apprentice because I'm still in high school. It was great, I got out of school early everyday, I got paid and I got credit for doing it, sounds great doesn't it.

    Everyone there is really really nice and I felt really welcome. I shadowed an engineer for a couple of months doing small odd jobs for him that he didn't want to do. Then I got my very own job. It was just 3 bays but they were mine, I did it right, they were build and installed in 2 weeks. Well after that work kinda disappeared for me, so I found more doing incoming quotes. I did that 8 hours a day for my entire summer vacation, so you would think I was pretty good at it right (and I was pretty darn good too). But the CEO of the company said "I don't want to stress you with quoting in case you make a mistake." (which I never did) So long boring story short I've been printing 24"x35" drawing for 3 months straight, 15-20 hours a week.

    Sounds like fun doesn't it? Oh yeah the pay me next to nothing to do it too. And don't bother asking for a raise, they might need a 6th car....
