    Thanks! Never thought of them like vines but that's a great idea for another build!

    Thanks!

    That has become more of a point in my builds, at least ones that I plan on using. I'll still do crazy stuff that is impossible to change for competitions, but at home, I want to be able to swap in that new card or drive without completely tearing it down and re-modding everything. Yeah, the cables are the one kink in the plan, but I can work with that.

    Have you considered a flared channel for liquid inlays? Making the surface of the cut narrower than the valley physically prevents the inlay from coming out.

    Very nice. Love the effect you have on the metal to make it look like jungle. Would have looked incredible under green candy. Nice work on the wood too :)

    I thought about that when I was wanting to try 50/50 solder and I've seen a few projects that used that method for pouring metal inlays. With the epoxy, it isn't an issue since it soaks into the grain. That stuff ain't never coming out.

    Thanks! Yeah, I got the idea way back when from @mnpctech and @Mosquito. Bill did a metal table and put a candy red over it and Chris did it on his Dancing Iridescence with a candy rootbeer. They both look amazing. Finally got around to using the technique, just without the candy paint.

    That good sir, is posh. Nice work! Love the theme, the leaf inlays and cable layout work so well together. The brushed/whispy effect on the alu parts is spot on. :thumb:
