    Cool, can't wait :) and it's all good with the delay ))) I didn't even start my project log...yet :S (we're still going over stuff...BTW we've got the duct system's working again, so that's a plus, and our teacher fixed the jigsaw which was broken last year (that would help me a lottttt))

    PS
    Keep my fingers crossed :)

    I've used PSUs to test fans, cathodes etc. Never had a problem.

    Amazing stuff, mate!

    The use of pyrography is pretty much unique and your designs are exactly what you want it to be: Art.

    Well done, 5 stars and rep. :thumb:

    Here I am again after the problems I had with my bios and the looooooooong delay I experienced with our wonderful post office!
    Anyway I am here for a huge update and a lot of work....!!!!

    I am going to start with the creation of the aluminum part of the door which is going to connect the wood with the moving steel part!

    Here I am using one red spare piece of aluminum that I found (its not going to be red).
    Some measurements and the cutting of the first main piece (you can see my dremel just a little before it died).

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    And here I measure for the bending point:

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    And my bending bench!!!

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    Is it good???? Yes it is!!!

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    And here I create a teeth pattern by using this bit and .... a lot of filing!

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    Measurements and drilling of the holes that they will connect the steel part with the aluminum.

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    Testing. testing, one two one two :p
    Here I start drawing some main lines for the final design:

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    And let the cutting begins!!! :p

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    One pattern......

    [​IMG]

    Changed my mind.... Second pattern!!!!

    [​IMG]

    More details

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    To give an emphasis on the uneven technique which this mod is based, this design its different than the other. One has sharp corners, the other rounded.

    [​IMG]

    Here I use the same dremel bit I used for the teeth effect to create an uneven surface on the aluminum.

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    Water sanding and lets get ready for some painting techniques!

    [​IMG]

    The steel black gloss....

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    Aluminum... red! (for now :p)

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    And yes!!! Black splash technique for a unique finish!!!!

    [​IMG]

    7 layers of clear coat:

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    And now the bezzel! I will create a video later on showing that specific technique step by step for the first time!!!! Stay tuned!!!

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    7 layers of clear coat as I did with the aluminum.

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    I decided to create something extra for the door. 2 pieces of red gloss acrylic for the upper and bottom part. Enjoy the process !!!

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    Diamond wheel for the acrylic:

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    Measurements for the holes:

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    Same for wood so it wont crack,

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    Black chipboard screws!!!

    [​IMG]

    Some epoxy:

    [​IMG]

    And voila!!!!

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    And now the rest of the process! M4 screws with nuts to fix the aluminum with the steel.

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    And the wood fixed with the aluminum and steel using black chipboard screws:

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    And here is how I created some stoppers for the door:

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    So .... thats all for now guys, I will be back veeeeery soon with the rest of the updates and the video!!! Till then, keep on modding and please feel free to comment!!

    ps: The door its not finished yet....

    Looks amaaaaaaaaaaaaaaazing, but for one thing.

    [​IMG]

    You really should countersink those screws. They sort of 'stick out' (literally and figuratively).
