    We call that snuff (IMHO it's nasty stuff but to each their own)

    Glad to see you getting some time for hobbies. I hope all is going well and Wish you a Merry Christmas & happy new year also.

    P.S. the polish looks good :thumb:

    Thank u all for the coments.
    Angel OD: I dont think my new girlfriend would like the real deal ,lol.
    Tyinsar:Im not sure if snuff and snus are the same but both are a nasty habit lol.

    Ok i have been doing 2 other small projects on the side of all the polishing :D

    First one was building a fot to my old Asus 17 inch monitor that i sold because i got my self a new one,the old fot got lost when i send it away for repair a year ago,but it never troubeld me because i had the monitor mounted on the wall,how ever the new owner wanted a fot.

    Front:

    Back:
    [​IMG]

    Mounted:
    [​IMG]

    And this is the final result,it only took me a hour and its just made to be functional not esthetic :D
    [​IMG]

    I gave it a slight angle for better Viewing:
    [​IMG]


    My second project was to build a wall mount device to my new 22 inch Samsung syncmaster 223BV monitor,i know that u can buy this things but they cost about 30 pound for the moust simple model so why not make your own..

    [​IMG]

    This is how it will be atached to the wall,very simple but it does the job:
    [​IMG]

    Mounted on the monitor, U can see that i gave it a slight angle for better view (the rounded aluminuim will push it slightly away from the wall:

    Final result:

    Hi!,over a year has passed since i started with this scratch build and im finaly starting to see the end of it :D. I just today polished the last part but im thinking of polishing the PSU to so that leaves me with one more piece to polish. After that i will start to assemble all the parts and hoppefully in the end i got my self a Pyramid shaped computer lol.
    Iff i dont count the rubber parts i have buildt,grited and polished 29 parts, no wonder it has taken a while to build this thing :hehe:

    All parts polished:

    And some closeup's

    Have a nice weekend

    Thank u guys, means alot to get some positive coments.

    I can reveal that i have grited the small parts,(fan guards, Lshaped alu,and the eye) with a finer/smaler grit then the frontpanel,backpanel and doors, a friend gave me this idea and it will make the fan guards and Lshaped alu parts that are mounted on top off the panels/doors to show more because they will shine more when polished ,this will give the case a greater depth and also makes u look at the smaller parts that i have worked so hard with :D ,I allso used a finer grit on the parts inside the case (HD,Dvd and fan holder) when i was at it, U will understand better when the final uppdate arives. Im stil puting the case togheter it takes time because i have to be real carefull not scratching the aluminium.

    Regards.

    I've been following this, it's a very unique design, and some very great ideas.
    Can't wait to see this done. Keep it up :rock:

    wow.......!!!.........i missed this one...weird..:confused:

    Kewl design, and difficult as i have discovered myself. ...:D
    With the pyramid shape u loose so much space which makes it difficult and the angles don't make it easier too.

    I love your eye for detail, and its gonna look slick IMO.:thumb::thumb:
    A question : will the polished alu not deteriorate in time? Normally alu would oxidize to form a dull coating?

    I am still suprised u get it all in there, as the base is only 40 cm. I had to use a m-itx board (17x17 cm) to get it all in. And even with that its also 40 cm x 40 cm.

    Dacust:Thx next update will be the end of it :D


    Thx ,i can only agree with u on that one, the angles is a pain and the shape is a space killer lol,the measures are: Base 44x44 cm, hight 44,5 but its going to be very crowdy anyway with the hardware inside,placing the mobo in the same angle as the case panels realy helped out to get all the hardware inside,the mice and keyboard ports on the mobo is not cuted out on the backpanel because they ended up to close to the side of the panel (the angles played a trick on me here),but that dosent bother me since i use USB on both, i also had to use a server PSU because a regular wouldent fit.

    Yes the alu forms a dull coating quite fast but when u polish it it goes away,the polish im using is suposse to last for 5 years in an indoor enviroment before i have to polish it again. Clearcoating the polished alu is also an option but doing so might reduce some of the shine (not sure).

    Regards.

    Glad to see this project still going, Ive been away from the forums for a while but this was one of my favourite mods when I left. (Really should learn to use subscribe). I may have missed it but what kind of kit you go to cram in it afterwards?

    lovely drive cage!

    But i think you should NOT use the washers. Perhaps just the screws.

    For the rest of the sculptured pieces, you are an artist! very beatiful things in there!

    cheers mate!

    Thank you Yemerich, i totally agree with you that the drive cage would look beter without the washers but i had to make sure no vibrations would be picked up by the case, i think i can loosen the screws a bit so the edges of the dampners dont show, going to give it a try.

    I can use the ocasion to give you a text update.There has been lots of smaller things to take care of while i started to asemble the case, i have actually been working with the case every day for about 2 to 3 houers since my last update so im not being lazy here, its pretty much done now and i will move in the mobo by tomorow cross my fingers and fire her up.
    If everythings work like it should i will start making a videoclip and taking pictures by saturday (if im not to hangover from Fridays activites :D,).

    Have a nice weekend.
