    Yup. It's a RAM drive. I store temp files for Photoshop work and my FireFox cache, temp downloads there.

    You can DL the software here: http://memory.dataram.com/products-and-services/software/ramdisk

    Ok here we go for one more update 1 step before the finish of the top cabinet.
    First I glued the wooden pyrographed designs using epoxy and my various clamps.
    I also added some black vitraux liner on the edges and some details.

    [​IMG]

    Using the same epoxy I glued the totems.

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    Change after change, I decided to use aluminum instead of acrylic for the top cover because its thinner and lighter

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    My bending mechanism. Unfortunately I dont have space to create a brake so I use various tricks for my creations....

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    After cutting the aluminum to the desired design, I had to create something for the screws to be attached, so I used a piece of acrylic which I glued on the aluminum.

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    After this and that I had to create a mechanism or something for the power switch and the Indian head. So I decided to use a small round piece of reddish plywood which I glued on the switch and then attached the Indian head using some flexible double sided tape.

    For the small front panel I used acrylic which I bended as you can see in these pictures.

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    Drilled some holes for the buttons.

    [​IMG]

    Here I drilled some holes for the top screws to pass through.

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    And pointing where the holes on the aluminum are going to be drilled.

    [​IMG]

    Here is my tap and die set ready to rock n roll! :p

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    Testing!

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    Here I take measurements to cut a little piece of wood where the acrylic front panel will rest on.

    [​IMG]

    Attached with epoxy.

    [​IMG]

    Here I am creating the housing for the main power switch. I am using 2 different kind of wood, one thicker than the other, which I glued them together, added some pyrography details and then applied 2 layers of mahogany varnish.

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    The top part and the front panel after the sanding process, primed then double coated with red paint and then the usual techniques which I didnt shoot cause I did it thousands of times till now!!! lol

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    Here is the housing of the main switch. See the difference of the outside shooting versus my room.

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    And the rest....

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    Here is a sneak peek of the housing with the switch. Off course is going to be attached on the main front panel and a lot of other decorations are going to follow so stay tuned!

    Please comment and share your thoughts. Thanks for watching and stay tune for more art pr0n! Peace!

    I forgot to mention that I am going to change the color of all the pyrographed pieces using mahogany varnish, it gives a darker look and its closer to the color theme!

    One more quick update with the finished top cabinet and a small video on youtube with power button testing.
    You are going to see me attaching the buttons, gluing the top part and the finished product.
    I didnt take pictures when I glued the wooden part on the front panel so excuse me and enjoy the pictures. The feet underneath the cabinet its not a part of it, but I placed them there due to the radiator's downwards extension.
