    Hello Master, Here noob want to start a simple project with tube shape with Fire and ice theme.

    I am from Indonesia and here i can't found any modding stuff as easier as other country so i just start with easy build.
    Ok start with the tools i have ( i just have simple tools so i will try my best to use it )
    [​IMG]
    - Drill
    - Acrylic cutter
    - U-saw
    - Ruller
    - pencil
    - file + sand paper
    - solder

    Other stuff :
    - Flexible led to create the theme

    Here i have finish design what i need to create acrylic tube .

    i try to make it as compact as possible and my plan is all part will connect using small iron elbow so it must be strong enough to hold all part.

    Next step : buying acrylic ( should be ready tomorrow ) = Done

    Big note : i don't have any big machine like laser , cnc , electric saw , etc expensive machine so i hope my log can give all noob spirit to start their first mod even they don't have machine above. mod is start with spirit and end with satisfy .

    Next step is cut the acrylic based from the design ( BIG JOB ).
    - i will use only acrylic cutter with ruler to cut the acrylic
    - will use drill with bit to make a small hole
    - will use drill with adjustable blade to make big hole for fan
    - will use sand paper to smooth the edge ( acrylic ) then langsol ( at indonesia ) it is use to polish an aluminium .
