    Good woodwork! My dad is a carpenter and some of the stuff he does is amazing! With wood, you can do pretty much anything.

    Looking great so far. Are you planning on leaving the wood color or are you going to stain it?

    WOW... GJ i am enjoying you doing the dovetails by hand! GJ but i agree if you could jsut apply your skills to a wood like purpleheart or even like a maple or mahgony! but looking great!

    also are you going to cut a window into it due to the fact that you had 2 cathodes in your picture!?

    GL...

    I love to see cases made of wood because the time and effort spent on them is generally huge. Love the worksmanship and can't wait to see the finished product :) .
