    Does getting your soul sucked out through your eyes count as a modding injury?
    Remember to close your eyes when swapping out a CD!

    And be sure to wear a REALLY good grounding strap. That's a lot of lightning to dodge.

    You should build it close to the biblical reference. Then you might get an electro shock everytime you touch it. :D

    And cut apart the PVC pipes. Man this stuff kicks a lot of dust!

    I will put that metal on the left side too, but want to add a window under it. Should I make a certain shape...what do you think?

    The processor arrived today.

    The first pillar has been painted. I want to make sure this one is right before I start making more.

    [​IMG]

    I set the top on, but I don't have it connected yet. I may have to drill the holes through the wood as shown and drill holes through the top of the case too. That way the pillars won't have to bolted directly to the case and risk losing their smoothness.
