    Took a shot at making some corner supports for the case, though I didn't like the first type I made so I threw it away.

    Cut put a piece of 1mm aluminium which I then bent to form a corner-like shape.

    As I said, It doesn't look great. Also, it spoils my thought of only using the middle profiles as frame, so I scrapped it and made some out of a piece of 5mm aliminium instead.

    Thinking of what to do next... Outher shell maybe? Anyways, see you later :thumb:

    Edit: I obviously won't be starting on the outer shell since I still have to cut out 4 more of these and then mount them :duh:

    Thx :) I'll be cutting out the remaining four pieces tomorrow.

    I think an overall theme following the shapes of those corner pieces would be seriously cool. Got all kinds of ideas flying around my head now :p

    Thanks for the feedback guys! And yep that soundcard is awesome :rock:

    Only had time for a small amout of work today, tomorrow I'll be buying myself a belt sander and a pile of masking tape (had just enough for this one).
    This is what I'm about to make, one for the top and one for the bottom.

    Right... *cough*

    Masking, cutting...

    And that's how far I got before time was up. I'll be finishing this one, and hopefully the second one tomorrow aswell.

    Thanks!
