    On the Cs Capacitor you have to experiment depending on the thickness of your panel.
    The irregulary on top of the Touch-wheel is my own mistake with the dremel.
    The edges of the Spec-sheet are cold-cathode tubes, they are tapped onto the previously made spec-sheet.

    Great to meet you at QuakeCon Milworkz.
    Got a good photo of your PC:

    Redwood was sreaming along the whole LAN.
    (Well till I messed up windows just before QuakeCon ended)

    Amazing Zap!

    I like that Cenobite PC...original and pretty awesome..I think I might die at night though..my computer is in my room..I don't like the idea much of looking over there and seeing a human-like figure in the shadows..

    Regards,

    Just FYI:
    I probably won't have Redwood 100% complete for a month.
    I am buying a house right now, and will be moving pretty quick so that will take some time before I can go back and attack the mod again.

    I didn't meet you at QCon but I was there. I kinda stood behind you for a bit looking at the case while you were doing some gaming, didn't want to interrupt. It looks great though.

    You're missing one:

    Unfortunately, the pics aren't working :(

    Perhaps if we all beg Piloux to fix them you can see one of the top 4 wood cases in the universe.

    (Also, I had never seen the second one in your list - thanks -- it's great.)

    Mil...it's not fully wood..it's just wood outside metal..and even if it wasn't..too much metal visible.

    The others are full wood :)

    I bought it from a local woodshop in Missouri about 4 years ago! i bought it there due to i saw what i was buying and some warpage problems happen shipping that is very common with this type of wood! I probably spent an extra $125 but i think it was worth it at the time but not so much now!

    I didnt mean to offend you greensabbth if i did at all! I was stating a point! sorry if i did though! i spent to much time on that thing for somone to say it isnt a real all wood case and is just a veneer!

    I have spent a total of $150 on wood so far, I figure about the same cost as a nice alluminum case.
    Besides the veneer it was all local suppliers.

    I was talking about the interior. You stuck wood on the outside..but it's not *fully* wood.
