    Day 4 (and last) in the workshop of my university

    I think I didn't mentioned that two piece of O.A.C will made. One for me, and one for my godfather. When he saw the renders he ordered one right away.
    So I thought it would be nice to make it special for him... let's engrave his name on it:

    An another interesting thing is that his O.A.C's hardwers will be different.

    Let's see some setups with my old motherboard (It died 6-7months ago :( ):

    At last the new IO panel... which now fit in perfectly.

    (My old CM Elite 331 in the right)

    Stay tuned... next time I will bring the hole thing to home... my father workshop is the best! ;)

    The most beautiful thing in joinery is the burnishing... and the best part of it It's never ends :D

    When you burnishing and if you think it's smooth enough... wipe the wood's surface with wet clout:

    Looks like it's coming along nicely!

    It must be a lot of work to clean up and stain all those wooden parts. Are you done already with the wood working?

    the case is pretty similar to a Ferrania 1970 super 8 film projector of mine (not sure if it's a compliment or not....)

    keep a fire estinguisher at hand...
