A wood mirror this was already amazing but it's going to be even more so.
Thanks Waynio. 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.
Me like wood ! Nice shining wood
combined with metal is just friggin' awesome

Uh oh, that picture again it's just not right.
Hahaha your right waynio it just aint right.
Im still painting the top and i have 4 layers done now.This weekend im gonna do the last 2 layers.Im also waiting on some more oak because i gonna use some more wood inside the desk.More about this later on.
First i want to announce a new sponsor namely SteelSeries.They sponsord me with some awesome gaming 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.
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.
First i cut 4 pieces off stainless steel pipe and drilled some holes in them.
Then i made 8 disks of stainless steel.Four of them with G1/4 thread and four without holes.
Then i was time for some welding and sanding.
These four pieces are done so on the the next pieces.Again some drilling,welding and sanding.
Time to put the pieces together.
The reservoir are not ready yet so more to come.
Thanks to my sponsors :
congrats to the sponsors! you really deserve it! And those reservoirs are awesome!
now keep 'em updates coming!
This is so unfair. Making all of us jealous over your welding skills alone. Sigh...
The reservoirs are worth killing for !
But cant they rust ?
Could be wrong, but looks like SS to me.
Awesome quality without gimmicks steelseries mechanical keyboards I got it's bigger brother the 7g looks the same but has a wrist rest that wraps around it, this 6gv2 version is a more affordable version, really nice peripheral set, congrats Paslis.
Those new reservoirs, words just don't cut it sometimes.
Those reservoirs are insane allready and they're not even done!
It is actually a crime to grind down welds that good. Still, amazing work!
Thanks kelmannen and sure more updates will come.
Sorry for that Furball Zen.
Thanks KoSoVaR and no they cant rust because they are made of stainless steel.
Idd Furball Zen its SS.
Thanks Waynio and its a long time ago that i owned a mechanical keyboard.Thanks for the compliment and they will be finisht soon.
Thanks PureSliver and i hear that often but i guess i have to make a scratchbuild were all welds will stay a kind of industrial look.So maby after this project im gonna make one.
I still want to kick you ass for grinding those welds!
Beautiful work, and a great frikkin design! Can't wait for more!
They need to be grind mate they just dont fit the design. Thanks for the compliment and more to come for sure.
I figured cause you cant get that color on AL
