Hey Everyone, I couldn't help but do a double header and finish this case entitled Marcello that I started around the same time as Nakamura but I didn't have time to finish. This project is based around the same Silverstone SG01 chassis that Nakamura is and will have the same front and back panel. The main wood of the case is Cocobolo, a wood from Mexico I believe with a really deep color and a very bad smell. The rest of the case will be brushed black aluminum and acrylic and mesh (i think) with accents of copper on the wood. Without further delay, my sponsor list. The great guys (Dennis) at AC Ryan To get an idea of what I was doing, I build a small model of the case: And then it was time to cut out the wood to the proper thickness, width and length: I laid out the side pieces of the frame on a bit of mdf first: For the joints, I would use a combination of half laps and rabbets. I guess i didn't take many pictures of this, because here are some finished joints: I decided to reinforce the joints with copper pins. The copper also matches some of the colors in the wood. The pattern will be something like this: On the top: Sides: And here is the frame where it stands today. the holes are drilled and I routed a rabbet for the plexi/Alu to go in the spaces. It isn't glued up yet though: Next up, I need to route a grove so the frame can accept the chassis. Then I am going to glue some of the pieces together while I figure out exactly how the sides are going to work. As an aside, I am putting Sangaku back together finally after the moron shippers destroyed it. Stay Tuned!
