    I finaly got the dvd bracket ready

    Its designed to hold the dvd player and the harddisks!!
    4 harddisk now, designed for 6! EXCLUDING the SSD's :p
    I will later show what the harddrive rack will look like
    It has to be very firm therefore i used 3 mm strip to make a U
    That will be connected to a support beam of 20x40mm and 2mm thick

    And made the cut out for the dvd drawer so it CAN open :duh:

    Thnx guys :D

    The honeycomb has certainly become beautiful
    It's always the question if you get exactly what you thoughts were

    There is only one small problem
    I had to send the camera lens to the dealer because it has a bug in it :waah:
    That was visible in the pictures
    But fortunately I was able to borrow a lens from a friend

    thnx timtom ;)

    AND update comming soon :D

    thnx for the nice comments all :D

    @Nitrixflare

    there was a company that €770! asked (I asked if they were going to make it gold :duh:)
    for a 2mm thick aluminum plate 40x60cm

    but also found one that wanted to make it for €90 :D

    but when I buy the items in the shop:
    2x 3x120 grill €40
    1x120 Grill €10
    6 bay hdd rack ?€30 / €40?
    and mobo plate

    also €90 or something

    Talk about ask and you shall recieve :D Coming along really good. So good it actually annoys me :wallbash: Not because I'm jealous (which I actually am) but because I know I have a house to renovate before my workshop is done and I can make something awesome :D
