    Time for the last update of this year guys!
    I did some work on the first compartment of this mod as you will see.
    I had to find a way to use acrylic in order to attach the bezel and back on the bottom part.
    I didnt want to use plain angles for "art" reasons and also for extra durability.
    So I created my own -more sturdy- angle by bending and somehow sculpting a piece of white acrylic. It took me 2 hours to create this piece!

    Here is how it looked like first.

    [​IMG]

    And after bending - sculpting (with various dremel bits)

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    By using some epoxy glue I attached this piece on the bezel.

    [​IMG]

    While I was waiting for the glue to dry I decided to fix the window mocks so they will give an extra 5mm space to hide and attach behind the panel.

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    Then I bended some acrylic to angles and also did the second piece which is going to hold the back piece of the case.

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    Some cutting, sanding, filing!

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    By using epoxy again I glued-attached the bezel on the bottom part!

    [​IMG]

    And also attached the second piece the same way. Screws will be used for extra stability/durability.

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    Drilled some holes for the screws to pass through .

    [​IMG]

    Attached the back part too!

    [​IMG]

    Time to slowly start building the side panel. First test fit the side panel's supporter.

    [​IMG]

    Here is the wood pieces I am going to use!
    These are only the half of them!

    [​IMG]

    Cut to exact size and also smaller.

    [​IMG]

    Attaching the first pieces with some universal glue. This is a very slow process as I have to wait around 5 minutes or more for each piece!

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    Turned the panel upside down and also start working on the top part as it will be not filled with wood. I will add later 1mm acrylic more designs etc.

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    Half way through the first panel. More to follow around 5 January.

    [​IMG]

    I also noticed after more than one month that the motherboard i/o part of the motherboard is reversed due to my mistake on the original design! Now I have to disassemble the whole thing and order a new one!!! OMG!

    Thanks for reading my worklog guys, I wish you all the best for the year to come but above all
    health, love and consciousness in your lives! Till next time, peace!

    Thanks bro, indeed is very handy though I bought it for sleeving I use it now and for bending. Before that I used a torch which served me really well for a long time.
