    Ok guys well im back again for another update.

    I started off today by marking out the top panel to enlarge the window
    [​IMG]

    And after cutting
    [​IMG]
    yes thats much better i think :D

    I then moved on to making up some brackets to secure the back panel to the body of the case
    [​IMG]

    And finished
    [​IMG]

    I then moved on to the front green acrylic and got it all marked out
    [​IMG]

    Then got it cut out with the jigsaw to allow easier access for on the scroll saw
    [​IMG]

    And cut on the scroll saw [​IMG]

    I then got it all marked up and ready for the windowed section
    [​IMG]

    And sadly that is where it has been left for today but there will be more tomorrow

    You found some true day-glow green. The shavings are even lit up.
    What are you going to do about edge gaps in the front plate? Bondo? -or are you just going to get it really snug?

    Right I'm back again with another update so here we go I will pick up from where we left off.

    Acrylic front panel decoration window cut
    [​IMG]

    And I wasn't happy with my first front panel as it didn't quite square up so I made a new one and marked it for the window
    [​IMG]

    Cut..
    [​IMG]

    How it will look in place
    [​IMG]

    I then got the clear acrylic for the actual window marked and cut
    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]

    I then grabbed the green acrylic and ventured over to my grinder with a 6" polishing mop attached and went about polishing the outside of the acrylic
    [​IMG]

    Unfortunately the inside edges weren't able to be polished using the grinder so i used some 320grit sandpaper and some steel wool to give it a nice smooth feel with a bit of a shine.
    [​IMG]

    And then there it is mounted up again
    [​IMG]

    Hope you enjoyed my latest update and dont forget to check back again tomorrow for the next update!

    Anyway update!!!

    I had a new addition to my workshop today
    [​IMG]
    It keeps me going!

    Then i marked out the acrylic for the angled bits of the main case for the tile cutter
    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]

    Unfortunately this didnt go too well so i did it using my jigsaw instead!!
    And got them polished up aswell (this process took a very long time from initial cutting to belt sanding to hand sanding to get rid of any marks to polishing!!)
    so here is one
    [​IMG]
    two
    [​IMG]
    And all four
    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]

    I then made up a template for the supports (note this is only a template so its not perfect!
    [​IMG]

    I then cut the pieces for my test support
    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]

    and it worked well, im not going to bother showing it as it was just a test of how strong they would be and how good the glue is! and well five mins after initial gluing i was able to stand on it with my full weight... and i then sanded and polished it and you wouldnt even know it has been glued it looks completely smooth as if it was made in one piece! so it was a success.

    so i am going to make a second template for the backside and get started on some of the supports for this.

    And im a bit annoyed about my camera but i will just have to get it repaired.
