omg that keyboard is sick! hey greAT job!
r3specta to tha man!
thats what i was considering doing once i saw the post. it would take a long time, but the effect would be so ridiculously awesome you cant quite grasp it.
wow great mod.
I am planing to make a wooden case myself so did a search for wood on the forums here and found this. Although not quite what I was looking for since mine will probly be a server but oh well. Been good reading anyway
When you fryed your lcd display i almost shead a tear. If it's possible you should realy get a new one. Oh an please make a wooden mouse to.
Man I love that keyboard.
I can't wait to see it in person at the next LAN. It looks very cool. I think the block mouse would be cool too. Just have three buttons on it though. Big blocks of wood on the side of your head might look too wierd, Unless you were wearing clog shoes of course.
Part 12: Lil' rodents......
I got the mouse done! This was probably one of the more fustrating parts I have done. First I tried to make a completly wooden shell using a miter saw, dremel, and a router:
I did six of these bad boys before I finally got one that didn't break while using the router!
After I finally got it looking the way I wanted it to, I tried putting the circuit board from the mouse in, but the wooden shell was not tall enough. Also I realized that I would have to use at least part of the base to have a mount for the mouse wheel. I decided then that I would simply build a wooden top for the mouse instead. So breaking out the miter saw and dremel, I got back to work:
Next I gave it some shape:
By the time i was through, I had sawdust everywhere. Next i put it together and tested that it would still work. I kept trying to click the buttons even though there was nothing to push!
Next stage was to stain it and get the buttons in place. I used hotglue to hold them in place. On the other end of the button, I built the hotglue up in layers to reach the buttons on the MB of the mouse. The LED was changed from red to green also:
The finished product:
Hi-res of the last shot.
no words ...
FREAKING COOOL Got an idea.. i dont if it's too late now. It would be cool if you made a "drawer" style wooden mouse pad on the right side
Just an idea.. anw.. it ROXX
Very clean and nice!
Yeah, I actually looked at making a storage for the mouse and pad, but I dont have any more room! I also would be scared of messing up that side panel. Would not be fun replacing it.
Are you gonna overclock it? I have yet to see a wood PC on fire ...
SWEET MAN Good job.
