looking awesome dude!!
Very sweet there Greensabbath. Some day I'm flying out to CA to meet up with you! I really admire your work.
You're too good at modding, it's not allowed
Thanks very much guys.
That'd be awesome.
As far as modding goes, I still have a lot to learn. As far as woodworking goes, the learning curve is infinite. I can't compare myself to the people who can't even cut a piece of wood because that'd just not be fair. I have to compare myself to the true wood masters (nor Norm), the people who can take a tree and turn it into a door or chair or table only using hand tools (power tools are not hand tools) and by comparing myself to these people, I am really at the very very bottom and I've barely just started to scratch the surface. Sorry, this was more a rambling of thoughts than an actual response. Thank you very much though.
Hey guys, i'm back... yet again... with another update. I finally finished the second shoji panel after a seemingly endless amount of f-ups (they weren't really bad but I take any screw up very seriously) but in the end it all turned out ok.
No explaining really, just some pictures:
Put that shiz together:
Next step, woo.
Stay tuned, the end is near. So near in fact that later this week, the case will be shrouded in secrecy (well not really) until a later date. Never fear though, I have a new case (teaser's in this log) that will be up here in no time... although already pretty far a long, the style is a bit different.
top notch work there dude. As usual
looking good there
Nice stuff GS.
How are you going to go about mounting the wood to the case?
Man those are some fantastic pictures. Im going to give your style a shot soon.
nnnniiiiccceeeee. btw, im sure you could carve a case out of a tree
Thanks a lot everyone.
I'll hopefully be working on that today. With any luck ( a lot of luck) i'll have the shoji done along with the front panel and the case will just need a few more touches and finish work.
@mvagusta: I'm not so sure about that but hey, that'd be an interesting experiment.
Thank you TG, i'm using my Canon 400D for most of the the photography and I finally got a tripod so I can take decent shots when i'm working at night.
Really beautifull work there greensabbath !!
Hey everyone, time for a nice big update.
First, I wanted to give the spruce a more 3d streamlined appearence since the new shoji design allowed this. The way to do this was to sand it... a lot:
There are more pics of the sanded sides later in the update.
After a lot of finish sanding, I needed to glue the two main sides together... so i did.
Then it was time to finish (or at least start) the top shoji panel. To start off, i flipped it over and layed it out.
Then in the same fashion that i did the side panels I cut the shoji pieces to length and made the joints.
And here's where it is so far. A little more shoji to do, a bit of plexi work, finishing, and this baby is complete.
Stay tuned for more
The title says it all, "Looking Hawt"!
It is indeed looking hawt =) Cant wait to see what you are doing on the other cases you are working on also.
Thanks very much guys. I'll be taking a little over a week off on these projects to go home for a little while. In the mean time i'll be designing and picking out some paper for the panels in Berkeley. Stay tuned for that and when I get back, i'll be finishing this guy up
Ive become a great admirer of your work since ive joined these forums, your cases are works of Art as well as being highly functional cool computer cased
Now I just wish I had the money for you to build me a case (oh well I can dream)
What would be your views on a wood and acyrlic case (say blue/green/ maybe even orange acrylic) would it work or do you think the materials would clash?
