    Your build has been going a long time but its perfection, will be well worth it in the end :)
    I was trying to be creative with my photos because my room is soooo small i don't have many options lol

    When im back on 2 legs i want to do a build again but in my shed then move it inside, hopefully it will workout better that way as this build was very messy and frustrating when trying to move items around by myself :wallbash:
    getting on the floor and back up took about 10 minuets at a time lol

    Thanks for your feedback it means a lot coming from someone like yourself :dremel:

    I hope your build goes well, cant wait to see it :thumb:

    Thanks,

    some measurements can be seen on the drawings i did, posted on the Facebook page

    as for other measurements, i will post them soon a possible, don't have them written down but i will get a tape measure out tomorrow

    Most the wood & all the glass was free, so its hard to put a cost on it
    in total i spent about £120 on the vinyl ,fittings & 5 switches

    i'm also starting work on a 2nd & final desk build, so far its still in design stage & im not sure if it will go ahead yet due to circumstances beyond my control :(

    But for the time being i will still continue with designs & planing

    If & when i do start ill do a new build log, until then here's a quick pic of what im thinking about building
    only the 1st design, so im sure it will change as i progress :)

    Looks sweet.:D
    -Next version: You might not want the triangle on the glass. That would break before it even left the glass shop.

    Thanks :)

    The glass wont be a problem, I already have lots of triangle glass I've made in the past.
    Only problems i need to work on to do with the glass is how to hold it in place but make easy to remove/lift when i want to get inside.
    All i can think of at the moment is some rubber/metal hinges so i can fold it up without having to lift it away from the desk as i do with my current build.

    Got myself a secondhand spare plate for the MECH and decided to spend a bit more time on the design, went with white & black to match the lighting on most my peripherals.


    1, how it comes when new. 2, Sanded down. 3, White primer (x3 coats). 4, White base (1 coat)
    [​IMG]

    How it looked when painted white and clear coat (without sanding)

    My 1st design, changed my mind half way though and started again

    Final design
    [​IMG]



    After 6 days drying i sanded the paintwork down ready for sanding and buffing
    [​IMG]


    after sanding and buffing, the paint now looks great with a mirror gloss finish

    Just uploaded a vid showing my 2X MECH mods & the Reaper mouse
    Added some shading to the white MECH plate & Removed the shading from the carbon plate.

    Unfortunately I get a bit nervous when filming :(
