UPDATE 04/09/12: Build album here. UPDATE 16/12/12: In order to refer to it more easily, I've given my build the name 'Placatus', approximately Latin for 'understate', 'calm', or 'quiet'. Hi, this has been an idea I've had for some time, then a few months ago I ordered materials and began work. I cut two pieces back then, and then I stopped to focus on exams. Now I'm back to working on it, and thought I'd keep a log here of my progress. I don't really have a plan to show you, it's in my head. I'm not so good at Sketchup. But to summarise, it's a minimalist, clean and simple design, made from black brushed-effect aluminium. So far, what I've done is to start cutting pieces to build the chassis - which I'm making from alu angle. The following shots show how it'll start to fit together. Note, also, that that isn't the pieces in the correct places, the short one that's horizontal is actually one of the vertical pieces - but I haven't cut the four width-ways (front and back) pieces yet - that's where I'm off to now! And here they are lined up in my AV rack, where it'll be when I'm done. As this goes on I'll appreciate any thoughts comments or suggestions - but I realise at the moment there isn't much to go on, you're probably having difficulty visualising it. When more's cut, it'll be more obvious. That's the down-side of not having any plans drawn out.
