    Damn that's sexy. I think you dropped it on purpose to make it sexier XD

    I love the wood look so much on a SFF pc. What wood did you use btw? Or is it MDF with a veneer covering like R-kaid?

    Glad to see the accident only knocked you down temporarily. It looks great, especially put together with the custom monitor. Very, very nice.

    MDF is very cheap, how about veneer? And what kind do you use, iron on or normal with wood glue?

    QK -
    Beautiful design and execution. :rock:
    I was sorry to hear about the damage, but you turned it around quickly & the final pics are outstanding.

    I thought the camera case was a nice touch. Very steam punkish, but you should have also crafted a wooden tripod. :D

    Thank you Voigts!

    She probably wouldn´t put it LIKE THAT, but she survived it at least :D Thanks a lot!

    Thanks Razer! Glad you liked the camera... Now quit school and finish that fantastic build of yours :rock:

    Veneer is not very cheap, and usually comes in excessive batches... but ask your local joinery workshop(s). If you´ll lucky, they´re probably have some left overs for you to have. And yes, I use the regular kind...

    Thanks friend! I appreciate your kind words. And yeah, I´m kinda proud I didn´t flipped about the accident. I have a history of making stuff even worse when it comes to similar situations. Guess I´m getting older :D

    Thanks Gnu!! I know there´s another project waiting for me out there... pretty soon I hope :lol:

    Thanx a lot!

    Oh, you´ll get your fix soon. Can´t leave an addict dry :lol: btw, is case modyssey on hold or what?

    Thanks mate!

    Then rest! :D

    Back in time, just like Michael J Fox??? ... Thanx!!

    Thank you. Yeah, I´ve thought about a wooden tripod... and I´m still thinking :lol:

    Thank you very much Beast!!
