    Thanks Waynio. :D I dont think i can finish the top this weekend because i still have to do 4 layers and between every layer it needs 24 hours to repaint.But i have a lot of other things to make so it will be finisht sooner or later. :D

    Update 15.

    First i want to announce a new sponsor namely SteelSeries.They sponsord me with some awesome gaming gear.

    [​IMG]

    The gear.

    Thanks a lot SteelSeries and specially Geoffrey and Chris.

    The last week i was busy sanding and painting the top.First i choose for 6 layers but i change that into 8 layers.I still have 2 layers to go.So some more sanding and painting.

    [​IMG]

    Because the wood gives the desk a more classic look i decide to also use some wood in the inside.I ordered some more wood and i hope it arrives soon.

    Time to do some work.The 90 degree reservoirs didnt look right inside the desk so i had to make some new ones.Again a new design. :D

    First i cut 4 pieces off stainless steel pipe and drilled some holes in them.

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    Then i made 8 disks of stainless steel.Four of them with G1/4 thread and four without holes.

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    Then i was time for some welding and sanding.

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    These four pieces are done so on the the next pieces.Again some drilling,welding and sanding.

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    Time to put the pieces together.

    This is so unfair. Making all of us jealous over your welding skills alone. Sigh...

    It is actually a crime to grind down welds that good. Still, amazing work!
