Awesome wood works
dang, great work man!
Thanks very much guys. With some new motivation, I'm planning on putting a mostly full day of work in today. I'm locking myself in my room and doing as much of the shoji as possible along with routing some more grooves and attaching and milling the front plate. I hope to finish most of the construction of the case this week. Stay tuned.
wooo cant wait
Hey guys. I should have realized this much earlier (like before I did all the friggen work) but the side panel design isn't going to work.
Today, I finally got all the shoji pieces rough cut to realize that getting them to fit flush with the spruce and cherry is going to be a nightmare.
The solution is to make a thinner panel of shoji and put that behind the spruce pieces. I actually like this better because it will enable me to get more sculptural with the spruce and give yet another layer to the whole thing which should be sweet.
Anyway, here's some of what I did.
Tools of the trade:
Lots of repetative cutting:
and more cutting:
...except i'm redoing everything
All the wasted work:
Something that is going right that i'll talk about later:
Stay tuned for more of course.
whoa dude this is fab work... my father inlaw thinks he can work with wood .... he makes ok cup holders out of 4x4's ... but thats about it ...
Thats not SNAFU it's FUBAR! Love seeing your woodwork it's amazing
Hey everyone, yet another update.
I worked on the front today, making it as simple and clean as possible.
I started by drilling and tapping the holes for the screws that attach the acrylic.
And then I cut two holes and chamfered the edges for the clean look to accept the buttons:
Taking the paper off temporarily to see what it looks like. Please don't get scratched
Thats it for now, shoji time tonight. Stay tuned.
awesome keep it up!
ooo and i have that pencil lol!!! its awesome i use it for my initial illustration work! its a great pencil. lol
the mods great!
Thanks. Haha, i actually found that pencil. I think it belonged to some poor second year architecture student... sucker. I love it though.
yes looks like a nice pencil. what's it called/who'se it made by?
and the mod is looking awesome as always, Greensabbath. goes without saying nowadays, really, we know that anything from you is gonna be great
Keep it up, going strong =D
you matched the buttons wonderfully
Thanks very much guys. The pencil is a Graphgear 1000 by Pentel, friggen sweet. To continue with the update craziness, I have a new one, with good news this time no less.
I cut new shoji pieces, smaller ones this time.
Put 'em together:
This needs to go into that:
Got the rest ready too: (you can see the waste pile in the back, damn shame that is)
They attach to the frame with these:
Now the middle piece:
And its done, woo. There are only 6 points where the shoji touches the frame, much better than the 25 or something there was going to be. And it looks way better too.
Stay tuned after I slave away for another day.
Looking amazing as usual, I have always loved shoji, and its awesome to see it in your case designs =) Always great to see your projects progress.
Oh yeah! Much better. Awesome!
