    Are you serious?
    The man lives and works in one room. Although I'm guessing, I'd say he goes without a
    lot to pay for the laser cutting and materials. Dedication and perseverance is what he has
    tons of and you don't get those by wishing..
    Great work AnG3L, I'm always watching and can't get enough of your unbounded enthusiasm.:thumb:

    Im seeing some intresting shapes! a sure thing of an AnG3L mod :)

    Im like the way this one is going you seem to be able to work with any material... i just don't get it are you some sort of modding android?

    I can't imagine for a second how this was is going to turn out if its anything like the standard you have set in the past then its sure to be a great read (i still have'nt picked my jaw of the floor from future shlock)

    Keep it up mate!

    OK! I was busy couple of days and when came back I saw another amazing project by AnG3L.
    Dude, this is awesome! How do you find time to do this all?! All those curvy shapes must have been a pain to design and cut, not even mentioning finishing it!
    Mod on! I'm watching:)

    Oh, amazing "modding suit" you have there! Sweet!:)

    I'd have thought laser cut would leave the edge perfect, nice job on perfecting the edges :thumb:.

    I really should invest in some basic marking tools like a compass so I don't have to search around for the perfect circle object :lol::duh:.

    Just looked at your side panels & they are quite similar to the ones I'm going to make lol, we'll have slightly matching panels lol :D :thumb:.

    This is not a side panel this is the back piece ;) I am working on the side panels right now! :) Update soon! :thumb:

    Here we go with the third update.
    My attempt on the side panel failed completely as the flexible wood part proven to be not so durable even I was going to add a second layer on it. And because of that I am changing my plans to acrylic pieces plus the wood cylinders.
    Here you will see the progress.
    First I finished sanding the main 2 side panel holders.

    [​IMG]

    Then I reinforced them with some isopon which was also used to cover some minor imperfections.

    [​IMG]

    Sanding again!

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    Here I mark the pieces of flexible 1mm pine wood.

    [​IMG]

    Preparing some epoxy glue.

    [​IMG]

    I attached the piece with some "temporary screws".

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    It might seems nice but my experience says that its better to build something durable instead of nice looking and very fragile.

    [​IMG]

    Here I dulled the 2 remaining clear acrylic pieces. 2 and a half hours to get that perfect look on the edges!!!

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    To open the side panels I am going to use an aluminium tube 1cm which is going to be held in place with 2 solid acrylic tubes of 0.9cm. I had to file down the 2 parts so they wont be tight, to be able to insert and remove the aluminium tube in order to remove the side panel.

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    Here you can see them attached on the case parts and also on the removable parts too.

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    So as you have seen I aint a guitar maker lol to be able to bend wood like a pro but that wont stop me from searching alternative ways to achieve perfection in what I do.

    Thanks for reading my worklog guys, till next time, peace!!

    It's brilliant how you manage to take pictures even during time sesitive work bits like adhesive, something I don't seem to always do but know I should, I only sometimes get action pics :), with project logging like this you could release a modding guide book mate :thumb:.

    Nice progress too AnG3L :thumb:.

    Thanks man, well its aint easy but I usually take the harder shots instead of the easy ones lol, I am a backward person ;P
