    Take it easy with the ebony. It's probably poached.
    The stain job came out fantastic.

    Oh I'm not messing with ebony lol, glad you liked the staining. It was a ridiculously work intensive process to make it come out that way. More pictures coming really soon

    It's
    It's both an AMP and a DAC. I'm actually making a headphone stand as well in theme with the build which you will see very soon. As is tradition it is also somewhat overbuilt:)

    Well hello again :)

    I'll start off with some pictures of the table after the varnishing (yet to get nanowax treatment) and if you scroll further down you'll see some of the cablework.

    nevermind the dust:) It will dissapear

    Now onto the cablework. Thanks again to ICEMODZ for chipping in and helping me out on this!

    First things first I had to get everything out. My living room once again is a mess:(

    [​IMG]

    Just did a bunch of y-splitters for these cables and I run them on 2 different knobs on the fan controller

    [​IMG]

    Might be a tip for anyone new to this to grab one of these so you make sure you get it right without blowing any components up

    [​IMG]

    Then I proceeded to hide pretty much every fan cable in the actual frame.
    [​IMG]

    Sneaky sneaky cable management:)

    [​IMG]

    Had to heatshrink all the y-splitters

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    The 360 radiator fans did get sleeved however because they will be somewhat visible

    [​IMG]

    Testrunning everything. Worked:)

    [​IMG]

    This is just a temporary solution because everything will keep going in and out

    [​IMG]

    For those wondering the fan cables from the back radiators (the 560 monstahs) will be run underneath the side fans and completely hidden

    [​IMG]

    My first sleeved cable:) this one will run the fan controller

    [​IMG]

    And this is what comes out after the wood comes back down

    [​IMG]

    And after this I'll get onto more cable work. Until next time

    Well happy halloween, I dressed up as usual to my "homeless elf" costume and did some cablework:) This is pretty time consuming stuff I'm learning as I go but after 2 attempts on my harddrive cable this is what I ended up with

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    And by some miracle it worked

    Going off the rails here a little bit but I wanted something that suited the table where I could rest my headphones when I'm not using them so I made a custom headphone stand.

    Plasmacut some stainless 4mm thick circular plates and lathed and treaded some 30 mm stainless shaftsteel. Then proceeded to make some holes and this is what the mounting device looks like.

    And yeah It will get the same Birch style wood with 12 layers of varnish:D That being said I sent the wood off for some final treatment so it doesn't get scratched by the heavy use. So you will see it all together on friday evening but heres the metal at least :)
