    Welcome to bit-tech; in order to get your picture to display properly, you'll have to host it somewhere like imageshack and then paste the code they give you into your post :)

    Close up

    Here is a close up of the front of the case. The DVD tray is concealed behind the map. The button for the DVD is walnut (I left it unfinished) The frame for the case is mahogany and the map is glued to .25" plexiglass.

    [​IMG]

    The brass screws (3 per HD) hold the two 250GB SATA drives. I re-enforced the plexi with a smaller plate of plexi. So now the two droves "float" in the case. Actually, they are only affixed on one side.

    [​IMG]

    Here is the case before I glued the map to the plexi.

    That's really cool. I like the wooden frame. Did you put it together yourself?

    Not posting to the work log

    I had originally intented on posting this on the work log, but after I read the rules, I figured it would be better served in the finished work sections.

    Also, I'm looking for a place to host all the pictures. I have almost 200 picts of the projects. From the very first to the last.

    Anyone know where to host that many pictures. I used image shack at first but seem to be limited on the number of pics there.

    Close-ups

    Here are some closeups.

    This is the DVD Drive and the eject button.
    [​IMG]

    This is the front 120mm cooling fan vent.
    [​IMG]

    This is the back with the two 80mm fans.

    [​IMG]


    The case has (1) 120mm fan in the front, (2) 80mm fans in the back, (1) 120mm fan in the PSU that vents to the bottom and the CPU fan. Keeps everying nice and cool. Then again the AMD 64X2 4600+ doesn't run that hot to begin with, but the two SATA drives are kept comfortable.
