    Great job man, I love the color of the granite. That's one computer nobody's gonna just pick up and walk off with. And I thought working with metal was a pain!

    Hello Pieter nice to see your case here on bit-tech. Very nice case I seen it from a little distance at the tBCL and very great work on the granite. :thumb:
    It was nice to see you on the tBCL from 2007. Also I have the answer for how he lifts this case. His dad helps him to lift it.:rock:

    Beautiful stone. Welcome to BT!:D I wanted to do something similar with marble tile, but I have a bad back.:hehe: I'm glad I didn't now. You would have topped me.
    I bet it's nice and quiet, too.

    That's so sweet and being granite its not likely to get stolen. You work for a stone masons yes? that looks like the sort of thing a company makes to show off the talent and skill of its staff.

    True. Would be best not to leave the keys in the forklift. ;P

    That's a great looking case, very nice work on it, Pieter!

    Impressive work. Must have been a hard material to work with. I think the white accents inside really set it off beautifully though

    I would!
    I'd just need to sneak a few Mexican day-laborers into the lan. If you hire enough of them, you can lift cars.
    You need a matching granite 30"fp monitor.:D

    I was talking to my brother the other day about making a case out of granite, just because I never seen it done before,, well in till now,, now that I seen what you've done, I would say the one I was thinking of doing would look like junk compared to yours,,, Awesome job, I'll have to show my brother this one.
